At the 60th anniversary 2009 Byrnes Foundation Luncheon, architect and
artist David Damon, 1983 scholar, presented an original artwork for permanent
display in the James F. Byrnes Room at Clemson University.
He stated, "The
design to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the James F. Byrnes Scholars
captures key moments of memory. The design is composed of
of James F. Byrnes
icons of the U.S. and S.C. domes where he worked
the S.C. state flag and map that we share as our home
an image of a
parent and child that bonds each of us in unity
starfish and the nautilus
that represent Super Weekend on the beach
the calendar of 12 months
that keep us connected
interlocking circles of life
the red square
of both loss and love
and our motto: United by Loss, Bound by Love."
Elements of the watercolor are used throughout the Byrnes Schoalrs website to brand its various sections.
