The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' Ent Center for the Arts has a new, permanent sculpture installation created by the Los Angeles based artist collective, Ball-Nogues. The sculpture, composed of bathtub bead chain and designed through computer modeling, was made possible by the Colorado Creative Industries' Art in Public Places Program as a "percent for art" acquisition.
According to Colorado Creative Industries' website, the Art in Public Places Program was established by Colorado legislature in 1977 with the goal of making art accessible to all people in public places and state buildings through allocating one percent of the capital construction funds on new or renovated state buildings for the acquisition of art.
The sculpture was inspired by the Light and Space Movement and was intended to respond to the building's architecture, natural lighting and surrounding landscape.
The Ent Center for the Arts is located at 5225 N. Nevada Ave., on the campus of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Visiting hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. For event listings or more information, visit uccspresents.org.
