Engineered Art: An International Sculpture Exhibition at Georgia Tech
Family Weekend will mark the official opening of the campus outdoor art exhibit titled Engineered Art: An International Sculpture Exhibition at Georgia Tech. The 15-piece outdoor sculpture exhibition by various artists features a soaring 50-foot steel piece titled La Tour by the internationally acclaimed, Chattanooga-based sculptor John Henry, who also is the curator for the exhibition. Henry is known for his large-scale public sculptures. Since the early 1970s, he has produced monumental works of art for museums, cities and public institutions across the United States, Europe and Asia.
Each of the 15 works represents the best of contemporary sculpture by some of its most recognized artists. Made from a variety of materials including steel, aluminum, cast fiberglass, copper, concrete, wood and rubber tires, the pieces represent a diversity of styles, themes and technical approaches characterizing our times. The location of each sculpture was chosen to complement Georgia Tech’s lush and open green spaces.
The sculpture exhibition is free and open to the public. Visitors to campus can view the sculptures at a variety of locations, including Tech Green and the Campus Recreation Center. The piece by John Henry is located on the Instructional Center lawn. Please see www.arts.gatech.edu for information on each piece.
Engineered Art is part of Arts@Tech, an initiative to enhance the Georgia Tech community by fostering programs and events spanning the arts spectrum at the intersection of technological innovation and creative expression.
