Study Knoll

Ridgewater College, Hutchinson

2003; stone, boulders, prairie grasses; 4’H x 33’W x 22’D; Ridgewater College; Hutchinson, MN.  Commissioned by the Minnesota Percent for Art in Public Places Program.

This work was inspired not only by the context of the college, but also by the landscape features of the surrounding area.  The predominant sculptural element, comprised of multiples of the same form, alludes to an open book.  Its gentle curvilinear shape suggests the flow of water as well as the region’s topographical changes.
