Penn State’s Campus Arts Initiative will unveil Lauren Herzak-Bauman’s site-specific artwork, “Colorwalk,” at 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 11, at Penn State Behrend. A meet-the-artist event will be held at the “Colorwalk” site, outside the Reed Union Building.
As part of Penn State’s Campus Arts Initiative project, Cleveland-based sculptor Lauren Herzak-Bauman has been using Penn State Behrend's plastics processing lab to create, mold and fabricate the materials needed for “Color Walk,” the site-specific art project to be installed on the college in November.
The Campus Arts Initiative, a project of Penn State’s Strategic Planning Seed Grant program, has announced the first eight artist collaborators, which were selected from the more than 158 applicants who responded to a national open call.
Through an innovative new funding process, Penn State is investing $2 million in its top strategic priorities, while simultaneously advancing the vital and transformative work of its faculty, staff and students across the University.
“Enhancing Health” will be the topic of the last in a series of public forums focused on implementing the University’s long-range Strategic Plan. The forum will take place 1-2:30 p.m. April 7 in the Morrison Gallery in the library at Penn State Harrisburg. Faculty, staff and students from across the University are invited to participate, either in person or via livestream.
