Explore ISU's public art with our monthly Art Walk
“The Art Walk is an opportunity for the campus and community to explore and dialogue about the role of public art,” said Director and Chief Curator Lynette Pohlman. “We want participants to ask questions, learn about artistic processes and how the collection came to be on campus.”
Pohlman hosted a large group of students, faculty and community members during the Art Walk that was held on November 14.
This event explored the role of the female figure and included The Fifth Muse by Norie Sato in Marston Hall, Reclining Nudes by Christian Petersen in the Anderson Sculpture Garden, Mujer Pegada Series No. 1 by Manuel Neri in Morrill Hall and Nocturne 5 (pictured above) by Karen LaMonte, also in Morrill Hall.
“I like to start out the tour asking ‘what are three things you want to know,’” said Pohlman. “With each tour we start over with different perspectives and levels of exposure to art. We want to make sure the audience ends the Art Walk discovering a new point of view.”
University Museums host an Art Walk each month that ISU is in session. Details for upcoming events can be found on the online calendar.
