Tour: Campus Sculpture Tour

Tour will start at the 2.14 Memorial east of Cole Hall, meander through the central and east part of campus, and end at the MLK commons. This tour involves lots of walking and standing. Please wear comfy walking shoes and protect yourself from sun and / or rain. Terrain may be rough (both grassland and concrete). Your tour guide, Ms. Jo Burke, Director of the NIU Art Museum, will lead you on a discovery tour of approximately a half-dozen outdoor sculptures.

We will discuss how to look at and appreciate sculpture as an art form as well as learn a bit about the artists and why these pieces are here.
