New artwork installed on Bloemfontein Campus
2011-10-11

 

The new artwork installed on the Thakaneng Bridge.

Last week, a new artwork by Cape Town-based satirical artist Brett Murray was installed at the Thakaneng Bridge. The artwork entitled, Seeds honours the youth of South Africa.

The multi-cultural context of our university is celebrated with 52 epigrammatic metal cut-outs, which trace a cross-section of young South Africans’ physical profiles.

The symbolic intention is to salute sameness and difference in an environment where the seeds of knowledge and learning are sown.

The artwork is the fourteenth sculptural piece in the collection of public sculptures for the Bloemfontein Campus that form part of the Sculpture-on-Campus Project, funded by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund.
