Window in the Grass

Posted in Art & Drama, Humor, NIU at 2:32 pm by Administrator

Here’s a typical example of NIU’s silly outdoor sculpture:

Window in Rock at Northern

I suspect it’s some sort of portal to another universe. So far, however, I haven’t been able to turn it on. 

The sad part is: Compared with some of the other sculpture here, this piece is actually not that bad. It doesn’t say anything particularly meaningful; but it’s well done for a (chopped up) rock with a hole in it. Note the Picasso imitation in the background.

Maybe it really is a portal. I wonder if they have lots of Zeppelins on the other side.

    That thing is hideous. It would be slightly impressive if they actually carved a hole in the rock, but no, they had to slice the thing into four pieces. So sad. Seems like a waste of a perfectly good rock.
