New sculpture dedicated on ISU’s campus


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) People can now enjoy a new Art Spaces sculpture on Indiana State University’s campus.

The sculpture called “Our River – Our Future” was dedicated Tuesday.

It’s located on 5th Street near the east entrance of the College of Health and Human Services.

The sculpture was created by South Carolina-based artist Deedee Morrison.

The steel circular patterns are designed to truly celebrate the Wabash River.

“When you work on a sculpture, you have the opportunity to figure out what material selection is complimentary to the art patterns. On this particular piece, diatoms are single cell organisms that in addition to being really beautiful, play a really significant role in the health and wellness of river systems or are sort of key indicators of the health and wellness of river systems,” says Morrison.

The art piece commissioned through a partnership between Art Spaces and ISU. That partnership has resulted in seven public works of art on campus.
