Art project on KU’s Chi Omega fountain receives international recognition

A public art display at Kansas University’s Chi Omega fountain, pictured above in this file photo, has been named as one of the year’s 40 best in the U.S. and Canada by a nonprofit arts group. Americans for the Arts, an arts advocacy group, chose the 40 works for its 2010 Public Art in Review Project. The works represented 29 cities in 15 states. The KU display, “Frozen Assets,” involved arcs of about 1,000 empty water bottles, and has been displayed during the last two winters on the fountain. The sculpture was created by 2009 KU fine arts graduate Matthew Farley, in a class taught by John Hachmeister, associate professor of sculpture.
