“Eternal Wind,” also known as the “Janet Hay Memorial,” was given to Boise State in 1998 to honor Hay, a 12-year member of the State Board of Education who represented Nampa in the state Legislature for three terms. The sculpture, which is surrounded by a plaza with benches and trees, was created out of stainless steel by 1984 Boise State graduate Nobuyo Okuda and donated by Hay’s husband, Robert. The sculpture is two half circles that appear to stand side by side with no support, are joined at one point and expanded at another to symbolize the student-teacher relationship.
The work is located between Albertsons Library and Riverfront Hall.
