Ad Astra Per Aspera

Ad Astra Per Aspera

Ad Astra Per Aspera, meaning "through hardships to the stars," was commissioned by Loyola Marymount University to honor a group of students that passed away while attending LMU. The work is located on the northern part of the upper campus, close to the chapel.
