Questioner: Anonymous 

Posed to: Shari Shuman, VP of Administration & Finance

How are the art sculptures on campus maintained? Who is responsible? For the example, outside of the math department, there is the yellow sculpture that is growing rust. It is not a good impression for the visitors to experience.

Answer from the floor by VP Shuman

VP Shuman stated that ceramic issue is being addressed by campus experts. The art piece identified by Math is being removed.

Posed to: Radha Pyati, President Faculty Association

What is the selection process and criteria for the selection of the large art sculpture pieces on campus? My concern is for the balance between displaying undergraduate student art and the perception of it by the public and potential students and their families.

Response from the Floor by Debra Murphy:
The approval for those sculptures occurs through a competitive process governed by the Art on Campus Committee, Chaired by Dr. Mauricio Gonzalez, Vice President of Student and International Affairs.
