From class to the park

Lansing Community College is an well known educational institution in Lansing. They offer associate degrees to people who don't want to spend four years in college. This year they offered a four years bachelor program in nursing, I believe. They may be is competition with MSU, however I think that their fees are cheaper. They have a few two years degrees in arts.

These installations were designed by the students in class and after a competition it was decided which one of the multiple entries will be displayed on campus.


The installation above is called "Education and Community" Why? I don't really know, you would have to ask the sculptor, however it is a very lovely presentation and the stainless steel some in natural color, some painted in baked red are a very nice combination, optimistic inviting you in the doors.


The two installation part of the "Stendby" assembly, need a little attention to be spotted, but once you see them, they seem intricate part of the environment. They were mounted in the last months, however they seem to have been there for ever.


This is part of "Sigma, Infinity, PI". I only noticed the infinity, but the others must be around also.


No, these are not a set of Dish Antennas. They are called "Reflexions", if the campus is shut down during the Summer when days are long and mostly sunny, I can understand why!


Half of the day the installation is in the shadow, but the other half is in fun sun.


This installation is called "Literature", I wonder why?, and it is made of stone.

I don't know if these works are supposed to be replaced by others in the years to come, or they will be there for ever. I suppose they are very inspiring to the new students. They were made by former students enrolled in the Art Classes at LCC.

Quite an array of different ideas and representations. I think it's inspiring that the college has used student's ideas for the sculptures.

I really like the red one, but then I'm partial to red in most things.

the very first sculpture gives the impression of a person in lotus position. it's a very good and very nicely done sculpture!

I like that last sculpture of the books best. At least it's easy to understand and it's easy to see it's relationship to education.

We have some of that type of art at our college here in Boise. And we have a resident artist(many I am sure) that works with bronze and there are a few around the city.

I fancy the first picture and the "Literature" sculpture.
