Wednesday, October 7 marks the debut of the brand new Meadows Museum Sculpture Plaza. The plaza has been under construction since the end of the school year to make the plaza more inviting with more gardens and sculptures.

At six p.m. Wednesday the SMU Board of Trustees and President R. Gerald Turner will celebrate the dedication of the new sculpture plaza. They will also unveil a “major acquisition,” a “monumental sculpture” by Spanish contemporary artist Jaume Plensa.

SMU-TV’s Hayley Nelson got footage of the sculpture as it was unloaded behind the Meadows Museum. ┬áThe video can be seen approximately 11 minutes and 32 seconds into the Tuesday, September 29th Daily Update.

After the dedication of the sculpture plaza there will be an all-campus Celebration of the Arts with MAPS (Meadows Ambassadors for Prospective Students) and MUSE student docents. The museum will also debut it’s new exhibition Face and Form: Modern and Contemporary Sculpture in the Meadows Collection.

The University expects approximately 900 people on campus and thus Bishop Boulevard both northbound and southbound will be closed from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m.
