Contemplative space investigation in Rapson

An ongoing investigation project into creating contemplative space on campus has placed a new installation at the base of the staircase in the Rapson Hall addition lower level, near the Metropolitan Design Center. The project is funded by the Institute for Advanced Studies and is a collaboration between Rebecca Krinke (Landscape Architecture), Diane Willow (Art), and Henry Emmons (Center for Spirituality and Healing). Custom seating elements and other changes to the space will be made on an ongoing basis throughout the semester.

A reception for the project is scheduled for October 6, 2008.

Questions or comments should be directed to Rebecca Krinke at 612-625-6860 or
