Odyssey exhibit brings together more than 10 sculptors who have
created new works of art to grace the 268 acres of the PNC
Artist Barry Tinsley, of New Carlisle, who has had several
sculptures featured in past Odyssey exhibits, hosted a week-long
working sculpture symposium during August, bringing together the
artists and allowing them to pool resources and to create
original works of art.
Sculptor Bob Emser, former executive director of PierWalk, said
“the space for sculpture here is remarkable, with many open and
garden sites for pieces. To my knowledge, there is no other
university of this size in this country that has this many
sculptures on its grounds.”
The Odyssey Cultural Series will feature a
variety of other events throughout the year, including exhibits
of photographs by LaPorte County native Rebecca Janes, as well
as a series of films shown during the coming months.
The exhibit is
open to the public for self- or guided tours. Information is
available in Schwarz Hall at Campus Relations. Tours can be
arranged by calling 785-5593.
