Art in the Library: Invisible Cities

Posted February 26, 2016

Look around Dimond Library in the next week and you'll see some new art. Students in Sachiko Akiyama's class, Installation: Sculpture in Context, have created mini installations to explore how cities are defined.

The installations in the library and around campus are a response to the book, Invisible Cities, by Italo Calvino, a narrative which explores how cities are defined. Inspired by this definition of place, the art installations aim to create places where they did not exist before.

There will be six pieces in the library between February 25th and March 4th — see if you can find them all!
