Art Works To Adorn TWU Arts and Sciences Building

Art Works To Adorn TWU Arts and Sciences Building

8/13/02


DENTON — Artwork created by Texas Woman's University alumni and students will be installed this week in the recently renovated Arts and Sciences Building. The works will be unveiled to the public on Aug. 22 during a ceremony to commemorate the completion of the $4.5 million renovation project.

The Aug. 22 ceremony will be from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the courtyard adjacent to the Arts and Sciences Building, located near the intersection of Oakland Avenue and Third Street. Original construction on ASB was completed in 1960, and the renovation project began two years ago to update the 48,163 square-foot building.

Four pieces by TWU alumna Michele Mikesell will hang in ASB. They are: The Lower Pecos, Speed Racer and Boxcar 54321, all oil paintings, and I Cannot Relate This To My Conduct On Mars, a watercolor and ink piece.

Three acrylics by alumna Mary Haviland to be hung: Food For Thought, Chessnuts and Ready To Travel.

The installation also will include student work: an acrylic by Krispen Spencer titled Earthrise and an oil painting by Jason Yaw titled Lysate.

The renovated Arts and Sciences Building includes three computer labs, a lecture room, three seminar rooms and 13 classrooms. Along with classroom facilities, ASB also is home to the College of Nursing, which averages 1,400 students and is the largest nursing program in the state of Texas, and the Center for Nonlinear Research. Other amenities in ASB include a research and reading room for graduate students and a student lounge with study space.

Randall Scott Architects of Dallas is the architect for the project. Constructors Inc. of Dallas is the general contractor.
