Take a Campus Art Walk
A collection of sculptural works, free and open to all.
“For our campus community and the many publics we serve, The Block is a space for examining assumptions, reframing questions and bridging perspectives. We believe deeply in the capacity of art encounters to catalyze thinking about what is at stake for us in our lives. We invite all of our visitors to join us in sharing art experiences as springboards for thinking critically about who we are, where we have been, and where we are going.”
– Lisa Corrin, The Block Museum Ellen Philips Katz Director
