Two works by Sol LeWitt can be enjoyed at the new Bill & Melinda Gates Computer Science Complex and Dell Computer Science Hall. The concrete block structure Circle with Towers enhances the Speedway entrance to the complex, while Wall Drawing #520 adds lush color to three walls in the atrium of the complex.
The soaring sculpture Clock Knot is on view at the northeast corner of Dean Keeton and Speedway, in front of the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Building. The artist dedicated the sculpture on 26 September 2008.
According to the New York Times, the university is “poised to become a destination for modern sculpture” with the long-term loan of twenty-eight works from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Installed throughout the main campus, these sculptures create an art historical foundation upon which the university has begun building its own stunning collection.
