The Sculpture in the Stair


I found some info on the stainless steel sculpture that rings the main stair in Lawrence Hall. It is “Cascade Circus” by Portland sculptor Bruce West, and dates from 1990. Notable aspects are the soft curves and varied colors/surfaces of the steel pieces.

Some images from the UO Libraries image collection:

Notice the substantial “gap” there used to be between the stair handrail and the guardrail (now filled with a low segment of railing)–this bit of history is part of the “anomaly” I want to reflect in my piece.
