Now head out the front of Stewart Hall to the shining steel statue on the lawn. “Perspectives” was built by Charles Huntington in 1990 as a centerpiece on campus.
“Perspectives” is a stainless steel sculpture and measures 18’ x 18’ x 12’. Intended to be a “centerpiece of campus,” the work is designed to involve observes, inviting them to walk through and see the various shapes and colors reflected on it. It is symbolic of a university education – it has the same impact on the individual by altering one’s prospective in a way which is somewhat dependent upon the educational program pursued. To learn, to identify different perspectives, one must be actively involve in one’s own educational process.
Funded through the Minnesota Percent for Art program, Perspectives was selected from a pool of four finalists in 1988.
