UF prepares for “Lighting of the Gator” event

One of the University of Florida’s newest annual traditions will take place this evening with the lighting of a large steel alligator sculpture near the corner of Union Road and Newell Drive on UF’s Gainesville campus. The installation is a creation of artist and UF alumna Leslie Tharp.

All Things Considered host Dana Hill spoke with Tharp this week about her work and the annual tradition.

Dana Hill is a producer and director for WUFT-FM 89.1 and host of Animal Airwaves Live and Encore.
