Pandemic Art Adventures: Boston University

The closing of museums during the pandemic put me in a state of art withdrawal.  In search of a fix, I traveled to various locations in the Greater Boston area looking for publicly-accessible art.  College campuses are great place to find art, so one day in June I visited the Boston University in Boston, MA to see what art I could find without having to go inside.  I found quite a bit of art, most of which I was able to identify either through plaques or an online search. There is some excellent information this BU-sponsored website. There were a few sculptures I couldn’t identify, which are shown at the end of the post – if you have any information about them, please share in the comments!

Gregg LeFevre – Untitled (1974). Do we really need the plant in the middle? My guess is that the artist would not be pleased.
