Gracing the Great Lawn in front of the Anderson-Clarke Center is Joseph Havel's installation "In Play." The bronze sculptures are in dialogue in two groupings; one on the southwest corner and the other on the northeast corner of the lawn. They convey a lightness in their positioning, appearing to hover over the grass as if they could be easily nudged or rolled. In Play invites intimate inspection, contemplation, and a re-thinking of the ideas sculpture can communicate.
