Campus Art

Artwork on campus plays a large role in the Arboretum by drawing attention to the surrounding landscape. Since the early 1970's, the University Visual Arts Committee has installed sculptures to promote cultural awareness on campus. The resulting scenery attracts students, faculty, and visitors alike to these locations. Pickett Memorial Park, where many of these sculptures reside, is a creative demonstration of how the use of art in the landscape enhances the Purdue Arboretum experience. The Agriculture Mall is home to its very own thought-provoking piece of art, Transformation, which towers high above students as they walk to class.
