This bronze sculpture, titled "Thomas Lamb, Bush Pilot", was done by artist Leo Mol and can be found in the lobby of the College Park building. Mol emigrated to Canada in 1949, established a successful sculpture studio in the 60s, and went on to create many wonderful pieces including work for the Vatican. He donated a huge number of original pieces to the city of Winnipeg where they can be found in the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden, including the larger than life original of this one. Tom Lamb was a pioneer among bush pilots who first opened up the Canadian north to airlines.
