New artwork by Lashayla Stephens in the Alumni Sculpture Garden

November 2, 2021

We have another new artwork in the Alumni Sculpture Garden to celebrate! Come by the Hanes Art Center to see Lashayla Stephens’ Liquid Sunshine (2021). Lashayla says the inspiration for the piece comes from her childhood curiousity, and the iridescent and fluid ranbow spots she would find on the ground after it rained. Nicknamed “liquid sunshine,” the spots are a result of rain mixing with vehicle oil. Her sculpture garden work explores the mix of the beautiful and the disruptive, imagining a larger-scale oil spill in a sensitive environment.
