Centennial - Big 100

Workers put the finishing touches of installation at the home campus in Webster Groves.

After its initial unveiling in downtown St. Louis’ Old Post Office Plaza during the Webster University Centennial Kickoff event, “The Big 100” has moved to the home campus in Webster Groves.

With a footprint measuring approximately 14 by 12 feet and 18 inches high, the Big 100 is an evolving, interactive installation for members of the Webster University community to celebrate the University’s 100th anniversary. After last week’s kickoff, where it received its first signatures, the piece was relocated to the lawn outside the East Academic Building.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and other community members are invited to sign the numbers of The Big 100, paint them, and leave words of congratulations and inspiration on this piece.

Contributors should bring their own paint or markers and, similar to the storied “Gor-Rock” rock in the Quad, we cannot guarantee that a signature or salutation will not be painted over by subsequent contributions.

The Big 100 debuted during the Centennial Kickoff Party outside Webster’s downtown St. Louis campus location at the Old Post Office.

So if you’re visiting the home campus in Webster Groves this year, make sure to leave your mark on The Big 100!
