Finalists Selected for Campus Sculpture
The University of Rochester has selected six finalists from more than 120 international proposals for a sculpture near the Sage Arts Center on River Campus. Ranging from graceful wooden treelike structures to a neon rendition of Susan B. Anthony's iconic "Failure is impossible" quote, the artists' creations all seek to create an engaging focal point at the intersection of three popular campus walkways.
Sagefest 6 - Kill Your Hypothesis - set out to hyperbolize the debate between art & science.
A Public Art "Intervention"
Rochester artists Heather Layton and Brian Bailey collaborated on the construction of a "social intervention" art installation, designed to foster discussion and reflection on the impact of remote war technology using unmanned drones.
The exhibit, titled Home Drone, challenged viewers to imagine their reaction if thousands of deadly drones had struck in the U.S.—specifically Massachusetts—rather than in Pakistan, Yemen, and Afghanistan.
