Adela Andea Light Sculptures | Pride 2018
From Donna Pinnick on 07/5/2018
The Visual and Performing Arts Department couldn’t be prouder of sculpture professor Adela Andea and the spectacular installation she created, which is lighting up the George R. Brown in the colors of National Pride Month! Her dazzling work transforms a familiar summertime staple – pool noodles - into clouds of color and light.
The installation spans 145 feet and is constructed from pool noodles sliced into hundreds of thousands of plastic discs, sewn onto wire mesh and strung from a truss 19 feet above the Avenida de las Americas.
