Surls Commissioned to Create Art for Lamar University

Texas-native artist and  James Surls (Sculpture ’69) has been commissioned to create Lamar University’s newest art addition to bring inspiration and beauty to the campus.

‘Everyone can be inspired by art,’ said Kim Steinhagen, Public Art Committee co-chair, ‘It is one of those things that enriches our lives the more we are exposed to it, and it beautifies the campus. We love the landscaping on campus and art is just another part of that.’

Surls is a nature-inspired modernist artist, known for his carved sculptures and bronze and steel works.  His work has been featured in many galleries around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, as well as in Canada, China, France, Mexico, and other countries.
