Totem to Aging sits in the main hall of the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center. This steel, bronze, and iron sculpture by Bernie Carreño represents the culmination of the change that occurs as we move from our youth through the middle years and into the “golden years.” Although the golden years have much to offer, they are also a time of physical deterioration and pain. The cast iron and bronze parts represent bones while the steel portions represent joints and radiated pain.
