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.
