Murals at Willard Straight Hall
I've been taking my son, who is a junior, on a tour of various colleges. One of the joys of travel is finding quirky objects of interest and of course, ART in unexpected places. These are murals painted by Alison Mason Kingsbury under the auspices of Ezra King in the entry room of Willard Straight Hall in Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. The student guide rushed us through this with not a word (but gushed at us for minutes over the School for International Business and Labor Relations) proving itself little better than a benighted heathen.
I don't know what this was about, but it was amusing.
Just can't resist taking a pix of an anatomically correct statue of a Human/Transformers hybrid.
This is Cornell's Biological Sciences building (or one of them, dealing more with plant biology) so my son was quite tickled by the fact that they've let plants grow all over it. Even their metal gates are sprouting!
