- The sculpture "River riders" by Ann Roberts was unveiled in the Wilfrid Laurier University quadrangle on November 1, 1991. The commissioned piece features a man, a woman, and a parrot in a canoe. The sculpture depicts the river of life - the parrot represents the heavens above, and the rocks on which the canoe is poised suggest the earth below. The sculpture is 3.3 meters tall and 2.4 meters wide. The figures are cast in bronze, and the rocks in cement.
