Located in the Janet and Michael Greene Research Quadrangle.
Reach is based on Helical Aerial Screw, Leonardo da Vinci’s 15th century sketch for a gyroscopic flying machine, often referred to today as one of the first helicopter prototypes. Lauster developed the concept to celebrate the significant growth and change that has occurred at UT Arlington during President James D. Spaniolo’s tenure after the president announced plans to retire last year.
The work is intended to inspire students and others in their quest for knowledge, Lauster said. It spans 26 feet and has a central aluminum mast with radiating ribs of Dacron sailcloth that create an energetic, helical pattern.
Located in the College Park Hospitality Suite.
A colorful swirl of glass gracing the hospitality suite in College Park Center, one of the finishing touches at UT Arlington's showcase events venue. The glass design was created by David Keens, professor of Art and Art History, and is similar to his work in the University Club and other areas on campus.
