Art in the Library

   
Lovegrove  

Title: Remember 9/11 Tenth Year

Artist: Leoma Lovegrove

Location: Library West, 2nd Floor, high wall mounted

Details: The eagle was originally meant to be painted over the names of 911 victims during a ceremony honoring those lost. The artist decided against it and began a separate painting of this American eagle instead, reflecting that the names became too sacred to cover. 9' 9" X 18' 2"

     
Ecotone

Title: Ecotone

Artist: Barbara Cooper

Location: Library East Atrium, suspended

Details: Art in State Building Project, 2013. There are two forms, each about 25' long, that float in the center of the atrium, near the elevator banks of the library. The piece is made of layers of cherry veneer and metal.

From the Artist: "Ecotone is a place where two different habitats meet.  While it has some of the characteristics of each bordering community, certain plant species not found in either appear.  The influence of the two bordering communities on each other is known as the “edge effect” and it is where much wildlife activity occurs.

The library at the nexus of the university is a place where different areas of study meet, overlap, and generate new ideas and energies beyond the confines of the individual disciplines that it supports."
