This week at Wake Forest

Art in the Public Eye

Sculptures by students in Wake Forest’s first “public art” class are scattered around campus. With titles like “Swings,” “7 Esoteric Steps,” and “Apocalypse Pending,” the sculptures are gaining attention from students and faculty. “It is our hope that outdoor installations of student art will enrich the campus landscape,” says David Finn, the art professor who taught the class. Call the News Bureau to arrange a “sculpture tour” or set up interviews with the artists.
