Hey students, come on down! The Office of First Year Experiences has added Rob Shakespeare’s Light Totem to their IU Bucket List! (See bullet point #17: “At night, lay on the ground and watch the lights change on the side of the IU Art Museum.”)
Our 70-foot-tall structure has been magnetizing students and visitors since its installation in 2007 to celebrate the Art Museum’s 25th anniversary. Originally only supposed to be up for three months, Totem delighted students, visitors, and passerby’s so much that its “contract” was extended for three years. In 2010, the IU Board of Trustees approved the Light Totem for permanent installation. Shakespeare and his team outfitted Totem for permenance over the summer of 2011.
So before you graduate, bring your friends and come out to the IU Art Museum to enjoy Totem’s light!
