Scottish artist Patricia Leighton has been making art in the public realm for more than 25 years, creating large-scale permanent commissions that relate to the history of a given site and relevant environmental and ecological conditions. She views the integration of art and site as a collaborative process and works in tandem with a diverse creative team of professionals from fields such as ecology, engineering, architecture and landscape architecture.
Leighton’s installation in the museum’s sculpture garden consisted of six “growing cubes,” elevated frameworks of steel filled with living vegetation, sited throughout the three tiers of the space. “Stone Levity,” a sculpture by Leighton’s husband, Del Geist, was installed in the Performing and Visual Arts Complex quad, in front of the Performing Arts Center.
