Public art in the Contemplative Sites project will be temporary, with this inaugural work on display throughout the 2021-22 academic year.
Workers consult the plans, which were designed by Sean Brodfuehrer, an architectural planner in Campus Planning. Brodfuehrer says he drew inspiration from the history and evolution of the Progress Pride Flag.
Progress Pride Paths was done in partnership with the LGBTQ Faculty and Staff Association and installed by the landscaping service staff and masonry team from Facilities Operations.
The quadrangular shapes have been painted along 883 square feet of the V-shaped sidewalk enclosed by Knox Hall, Bell Hall and the Student Union.
