Abstract:

"In this book, Sarah Clark-Langager gives us the first comprehensive look at the Outdoor Sculpture Collection at Western Washington University in Bellingham. The Western campus, one of the most scenic in the world, is situated on an expanse of hillside that is one of the steps down from snowcapped Mt. Baker to the waters of northern Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands beyond. The natural setting is breathtakingly beautiful, but the artistic expression that is the campus - the combination of art and architecture - makes this a true jewel in a magnificant setting." "Western's Outdoor Sculpture Collection is not only significant for its history and the individual artists' works, but also for the scope of the public and private partnerships which, over time, have achieved a balance in the controversy of "public art" versus "art in public places." This book documents outdoor art on a university campus and the changes in context at every turn of new campus construction. It has a unique perspective in that it gives equal voice to the art historian and to the artist. Not only do the artists describe their inspirations and experiences on campus, they also interject their strong opinions on the issue of creating art for the larger public."--BOOK JACKET.
