ATEC Says Goodbye to Two Honored Guests

larner-x-woodAfter a year-long stay in the Edith O’Donnell Arts and Technology Building, two sculptures created by Liz Larner will be leaving campus December 3.

The pieces were commissioned by the Nasher Sculpture Center for the museum’s 10th anniversary, citywide exhibition Nasher XChange, which began Oct. 19, 2013.

larner-x-steelLiz Larner, a Los Angeles-based artist, created two versions of a piece titled, X, for the Nasher XChange. The sculptures offered a glimpse into the process of making art. A wood version of the work, which is located inside the Building, embodies the intersection of traditional sculpture media and new technology. A mirrored, stainless steel version is located outside at the Building’s courtyard.

The work has inspired numerous conversations and reflections, and been a central point for intellectual discourse among UT Dallas faculty and associates.
