One of the coolest things about Lubbock is that Texas Tech University has a nationally-recognized public art program, with major art installations on their campuses in Lubbock, El Paso, Odessa, San Angelo, Abilene, and Amarillo.
This piece, which was installed in 2019, is one of my favorites, because it looks like a pencil sketch come to life. It’s called “Oblique Intersection” and is made of short stainless steel rods welded together. The shapes in the piece mirror the architectural shapes of the campus buildings. From certain angles and even though it is a huge piece, it almost disappears. It looks different depending on the sunlight’s angles. It looks different at night. It looks different in the snow (come back on January 25 to see that.). It is, in short, a delight to view, no matter when you look at it. Here’s an article (that has an imbedded video) about it.
The piece was produced by Lead Pencil Studio (Daniel Mihalyo and Annie Han).
