Art on Campus Walking Tour

Put on your walking shoes for a tour of artworks installed throughout the Danforth Campus as part of the Art on Campus program [link], led by Leslie Markle, curator for public art. The tour will begin at Bauer Hall and will include stops at the Sumers Recreation Center, the South 40, and Hillman and Umrath Halls to see works by acclaimed contemporary artists Jaume Plensa, Katharina Grosse, Tom Friedman, Ann Hamilton, Spencer Finch, and Ayse Erkmen.

The Art on Campus program is a growing collection of public artworks by nationally and internationally recognized artists. Reflecting the diversity, creativity, and scholarship of the University, these artworks enhance the cultural, intellectual, and visual experience of all who visit as well as those who study and work here. By giving public art a strong presence throughout campus, the program reframes and transforms the environment, provoking consideration of both place and space.
