Backstory and Context
The Old Quadrangle, officially known as Woods Quad, is considered to be one of the more well-known areas at the University of Alabama. It is a large outdoor area sitting in the center of four buildings - Manly Hall, Woods Hall, Garland Hall, and Clark Hall. Originally destroyed during the Civil War, the four buildings, and thus Woods Quad, were rebuilt.
Nowadays, Woods Quad is also known for having an outdoors sculpture garden, featuring a variety of different artworks from both students and faculty alike. Tourists are encouraged to stop by and marvel at these artworks.
