Earth Bound Art Coming to ASU

Modern art lovers will be excited about Angelo State University's planned additions.The red ribbon piece is budgeted at $60,000, while the stainless steel comes in at $375,000.  Texas Tech requires a portion of major construction projects be dedicated to public art.  The art is intended to enhance the University's ambiance and aesthetics, even add whimsy, according to Dr. Rallo.

One criteria mentioned by Dr. Rallo is the art shouldn't look like aliens dropped it from space.  I'll leave it up to you to judge, but space art beauty is clearly in the eye of the beholder.

Update 1-11-12:  KLST ran a story on Dr. Rallo's new yard art at ASU.
