The University of Pennsylvania Art Club reinstalls the University's first
campus-wide, collaborative public art exhibit, Squirrels On Locust. This project inspirits the Penn
community for the Arts and the City theme of the 2009-2010
academic school year. The first exhibition of this project took place in April 2009 immediately following the completion of production and painting of the statues. The second stage of the exhibit will be on Locust Walk November 13th through the beginning of December 2009.
Undergraduate members of Penn Art Club crafted the original statues from start to finish. Thirty diverse student organizations and university departments sponsored and painted the statues. Squirrels on Locust, started by director John Agbaje and expert sculptor Sean Williams, has provided a unique medium for these groups to express their identities, cultures, and importance to the University's community. Penn Art Club aims to provide an outlet for anyone and everyone at Penn - novices, amateurs, and professionals alike - to share, explore, study, and celebrate the arts.
