Falls and Sayers Halls will open in fall 2014 featuring an original sculpture created by Texas artist James Surls.
University officials met with Art + Artisans, an art consulting firm, to decide on a sculpture for the courtyard located outside of Falls Hall. The piece, entitled “The Contemplative Courtyard,” will be centered on the space located outside of the north tower, said Rosanne Proite, director of Housing and Residential Life.
A seating area will be placed around the piece where students can read a book or hang out with friends, Proite said.
“It will be a shaded area because of the way the buildings will be placed,” Proite said. “It will be a cooler area to be without the sun directly on you.”
