Student Center Glass Sculpture Reception Set for Feb. 5
Release Date: 01-28-2009
The public is invited to the opening reception for "Emergence," the striking glass-blown sculpture that hangs above the atrium of UVM's Dudley H. Davis Center created by Ethan Bond-Watts, a senior majoring in environmental studies.
The event, sponsored by the university's Office of Alumni and Parent Programs and the Dudley H. Davis Center, will be held Thursday, Feb. 5, from 5 to 7 p.m., in the Livak Fireplace Lounge, 4th floor of the Dudley H. Davis Center, with remarks by the artist at 6 p.m.
The large, colorful piece was commissioned last year by the Class of 2008 as their parting gift to the university. State representative Kesha Ram, a member of the Class of 2008, will introduce the artist.
Four years as an apprentice and travel to work with a number of the world's top glass artists preceded Bond-Watt's undergraduate study in UVM's Environmental Program. In describing his concept for the Davis Center sculpture, he says that the piece strives to evoke the intermeshed swirl of the natural world.
