Art Comes to Campus: A Private Tour of Recent Public Art at Rice University – FULLY SUBSCRIBED

A Renaissance is underway at Rice with several new and exciting installations having been inaugurated in its ambitious Public Art Program. We will take an intimate view of several of the recent specially commissioned works; highlights include the iconic and groundbreaking pyramid shaped James Turrell Skyspace, a solar powered rotating ceiling installation made from recycled materials by Aurora Robson, the lyrical and contemplative Mirror, by Jaume Plensa, and the engaging and majestic bronze by Bruce Wolfe of Rice’s founding president Edgar Odell Lovett , which marks the University’s cenntennial. The tour will focus on projects in the central quad and will conclude with beverages, light refreshments, and casual discussion in the landmark Brochstein Pavillion.

Please join our tour leaders, Molly Hubbard, Rice University Art Director, and Rice art committee member, Judy Nyquist, who will share their inside knowledge about the exciting program, its goals and future.
