Public Art

ASU West Campus

As ASU’s West campus was born – emerging from a dusty 300-acre parcel with a handful of initial buildings in the late 1980s – so, too, was the idea of incorporating public art into design plans. In 1991, when the first phase of construction of seven buildings was complete, seven accompanying public art pieces also found their place on campus.

The pieces, commissioned to match the new campus architecture and layout, tell a story of the past, present and unlimited future history of the campus as well as the past, present and future knowledge represented by the University.
