2006 — Outdoor Sculptures on Campus

July – September 1

 

Each sculpture brings to campus a different expression of the times and transformations that WOU has undergone throughout the years. As a celebration of Western’s Oregon University’s 150 years, this look at the sculptures on campus, reflects the changes and attitudes of its faculty, staff, and students, which have over time sparked intrigue as well as discourse over some of the designs around campus.

This exhibit is meant to connect the many features across campus, bringing to mind how every detail at WOU enhances the experiences students, faculty, administrators, as well as bystanders gain from the physical elements that make Western Oregon University a unique place.
