‘Reach’ Dedication and Ribbon Cutting


The University of Texas at Arlington hosted a ribbon cutting and dedication of the newly constructed sculpture, Reach. The sculpture was created by Assistant Professor of Art + Art History, Darryl Lauster. Da Vincis Helical Aerial Screw was chosen as inspiration because, as professor Lauster states,“There are few persons who have come to be identified with interdisciplinary intellectual rigor more than Leonardo DaVinci. Leonardo’s legacy defines the uncompromising pursuit of knowledge across vast fields of study that UTA has cultivated under President James Spaniolo’s leadership.”

The event took place at 10 am on May 28th, 2013 and is the inaugural piece to what will someday be a collection of public art on campus.
