New Sculpture on the Great Lawn

Two students in Prof. Akiyama’s sculpture workshop course have installed public sculpture on the Great Lawn on campus. These are temporary exhibits that will be taken down within the next few weeks.

Laurel Sargent created “This is my Ashtray,” which, she says, was “inspired by the girl who threw her cigarette on the ground rather than in an open can.”

Shannon Roberston’s work is called “Too Small For Eyes.” She says her sculpture “explores the perception of  knowing and being known to others in appearance and acquaintance, but with the isolation that comes from the absence of further genuine connection.”
