My thin Florida skin still shrinks from the customary winter chill, but I was determined to explore a piece of public sculpture on campus this week.

Our Tuesday’s Objet series (pronounced “OB-JAY” from the French word for “object”) intends to highlight pieces on display outside the physical confines of our gallery spaces, to draw attention to the art that surrounds us on a daily basis, if we only take a moment to pause and look. It comes as no surprise that the number of works a museum has on display in its galleries at any given time pales in comparison to the... Read More

Hanging out with Author & Punisher

This last weekend during Bucknell’s Arts. Everywhere. Festival I was privileged to spend a lot of time with Tristan Shone, a.k.a.

The... Read More
