“Crucible,” by Kentucky-based artist Don Lawler, is a sphere of Indiana limestone measuring 5 feet in diameter. His creations, described on his website as “monumental works in stone,” can be found at more than 30 public spaces across the nation.
The piece was installed on the west side of Martin Hall, where crews are wrapping up a major renovation to accommodate UIndy’s new engineering department as well as programs in physics, mathematics, computer science and earth-space science.
“Crucible” is the 26th piece in the campus sculpture collection. A map and descriptions of the sculptures are available at www.uindy.edu/arts/sculpture-walk.
