Relief Sculptures, Barone Campus Center

North America, United States, Connecticut
Medium and Support:
University commission, 1965
Barone Campus Center & Tully Dining Commons
In 1965, Richard Lytle was commissioned to create an abstract frieze composed of six concrete panels that would form part of the exterior walls of the new Barone Campus Center, constructed in the International Style. Lytle took as his theme the connection between nature and art; the curvilinear forms on the frieze include elements symbolic of art, music, and dance. The varied depth of its surface takes advantage of the natural light from its original position on the exterior wall of the building.
