"An Exploration of Materials in Public Art" is the theme for this semester’s Art Walks hosted by University Museums’ staff and docents. Each walk will be centered on a singular material that makes up a majority of the selected public art presented in the walk. The tours will discuss artist, process, and innovation in materials. Meet tour guide Lynette Pohlman at Floating World in the Biorenewables Complex atrium.
