UMR: Bring Rochester to the World


Artist Name

Michael Fridgen

Installation Date



Dr. Goose E. Loosy, Vice Chancellor of Fowl Affairs, represents the University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR). The design reflects the function and role of UMR and its relationship with the international patients coming to Mayo Clinic. The body, neck, and head of Dr. Loosy are covered with a mosaic of international flag decals. The flag decals were computer generated, then printed on vinyl adhesive stock using a laser printer. Exterior paint was used to add the U of M colors to the goose. The sign-shop on the Minneapolis campus provided the school logo displayed on the back of the goose.
