PNC Invites Public To Its Sculpture Garden
Westville – The Purdue University North Central 268-acre campus is open to the public. Visitors are welcome to take a self-guided walking or driving tour of the Purdue North Central Sculpture Garden and enjoy the indoor exhibits and galleries.
Thirty sculptures are located at the PNC Westville campus, one mile south of the Indiana Toll Road on U.S. 421. A map and more information about the sculpture series can be found at http://www.pnc.edu/odyssey/ . Custom, guided tours are available through the PNC Office of Campus Relations, led by Assistant Vice Chancellor for Marketing and Community Relations Judy Jacobi and staff.
The campus is open to the public. Guests are welcome to view the outdoor sculptures from dawn to dusk.
“The PNC campus is a natural location for art,” said Jacobi. “The beautiful park-like grounds present a lovely setting that complements our large, striking pieces. We've been careful to place our sculptures so that our students and guests are able to enjoy them from the time they arrive on campus and as they move to and from classes and campus activities.”
Pieces of the collection of noted 20th century artist George Sugarman are now housed at PNC and may be viewed in the Library, located in the Library-Student-Faculty Building's second floor. Other dramatic art is featured at PNC throughout the year and is exhibited in various campus locations. Information may be found by clicking on the “Check out the Odyssey Events!” link at http://www.pnc.edu/odyssey/ .
Building hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The annual public sculpture exhibit is in its 11 th year and has brought visitors from area elementary and high schools as well as delegations from Mexico, France and the Netherlands.
Visitors are reminded that alcohol is prohibited and that PNC is a tobacco-free campus.
