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. This guided tour will discuss artist, process, and innovation of textiles in the Art on Campus collection. Meet tour guide Dana at the Jischke Honors Building lobby.
