Art on campus

Top with wavy black and blue pattern300+ Tops

Artist: JJ Harty
Exhibit dates: Jan. 11 – Mar. 25
Location: Library Building

300+ tops is a cumulative project focusing on play as a medium for direct interpersonal communication. Play stimulates creative problem solving, relationships, cooperation, collaboration, competition, and more. In this installation there are two open pedestals inviting interaction with the tops. As the project develops and travels to new locations, it is ultimately intended to be a fully interactive installation where all the tops would be physically available for use.

JJ Harty received his Master of Fine Arts from Washington State University. In 2014 he was selected by the International Sculpture Center for Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture and his work was featured in the October 2014 issue of Sculpture magazine.
