Woodrow-Wilson-e1554242666824

On Thursday, April 4, from 4:30 to 6:30PM, in the Friend Center, Room 101, Walter Hood, Professor and former Chair of Landscape Architecture, University of California, Berkeley and designer of a new installation about Woodrow Wilson to be constructed this summer on Scudder Plaza, will discuss the value of public art in reflecting on our past, provide insight into his creative process for the installation, and unveil renderings of the sculpture.

This event is co-sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School and the Campus Iconography Committee. A public reception will follow.

“’Double Consciousness’” will be a vertical sculpture of two columnar elements, one leaning on the other, wrapped with surfaces of black and white stone and etched with quotations representing both the positive and negative aspects of Wilson’s legacy. At the sculpture’s center, the two vertical planes will face each other; one is reflective stainless steel and the other is a glass lenticular surface with images of Wilson’s critics.”
