U.Va. honors Yeardley Love with Rotunda draping, 'Day of Dialogue'

September 17, 2010

The University of Virginia honored the memory of Cockeysville native Yeardley Love with a symbolic display on the schools grounds in anticipation of Friday's "Day of Dialogue."

The columns of the school's Rotunda were draped with black material this week as part of an art project meant to remember the U.Va. lacrosse player. According to a release, 10 south-facing columns were draped in "black diaphanous fabric."

The University also announced Friday that they were planning a series of events the following Friday that are designed to encourage dialogue among U.Va. students, faculty and staff in the wake of Love's death. The 'Day of Dialogue' will include readings, musical performances and a resource fair.

Men's lacrosse player George Huguely was arrested in her murder in May.
