The Georgia Tech campus is home to a 15-piece international exhibition by various artists. The exhibition, on loan to the Institute, features a soaring 50-foot steel piece titled "La Tour" by the internationally acclaimed, Chattanooga based sculptor, John Henry, who also is the curator for the exhibition.
Engineered Art is part of Arts@Tech, an initiative to enhance the Georgia Tech community by fostering programs and events spanning the arts spectrum at the intersection of technological innovation and creative expression. The initiative is an outcome of the Institute's Strategic Plan.
The sculpture exhibition is free and open to the public.
Each of the 15 works represents the best of contemporary sculpture by some of its most recognized artists. Made from a variety of materials including steel, aluminum, cast fiberglass, copper, concrete, wood and rubber tires, the pieces represent a diversity of styles, themes, and technical approaches characterizing our times.
The location of each sculpture was chosen to complement Georgia Tech's lush and open green spaces. The exhibition's curator, John Henry, is know for his large scale public sculptures. Since the early 1970s, he has produced monumental works for museums, cities, and public institutions across the United States, Europe, and Asia.
