Tour Western's acclaimed sculpture collection

Students' research and re-interpretations cast the sculptures in a new light

​Students in the Visual Dialog Course (ART 109) create a multimedia tour of the sculpture collection based on their own research.
Multimedia Tour

Students in Time-Based Art (ART 385) create original works of sound art that provide aural portraits of the sculptures. The best way to enjoy the portraits is to put the application Soundcloud on your phone and listen to the tracks in proximity to the sculptures themselves.
Aural Portraits

Students in Creative Writing by Design (English 195) tour the collection and respond to the sculptures in poems and graphic presentations.
