Table for Contemplation and Action: Celebration and discussion

Rebecca Krinke's (Landscape Architecture) Table for Contemplation and Action sits in the Rapson Hall Courtyard and is in almost continuous use by students. In the middle of the six-foot square table is a copper box containing an outdoor element (moss, tree bark, leaves, etc.). A blown glass vessel at one end of the table contains bits of paper upon which students have written about stress and fears. When the vessel is full, the bits of paper will be burned without being read.

A celebration of and informal discussion about the table will take place on Wednesday, April 14, 2010, 12 p.m., in the Rapson Hall Courtyard. The event is a public thank you to all who worked on and have used the table. Refreshments will be provided.
