Sculptures added at park
NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma School of Art and Art History sculpture program, in partnership with the Norman Arts Council’s Public Art Board, has installed five outdoor sculptures, created by OU art students, in Lions Park. A sixth sculpture will be installed later this summer. All will be displayed throughout the summer.
The works are diverse and most are made of steel, but also include cement, acrylic and interactive technology. The class project exposed students to real world professional practice and gave them insight into the facets of creating public artwork.
