Oliver Presents Design Concept at University of Kentucky for Memorial Hall

April 4th, 2018

Karyn Olivier (Ceramics ’01) submitted design concepts for art to be featured in two vaulted spaces in Memorial Hall’s vestibule at University of Kentucky. As part of their visits, Olivier and another artist presented initial proposals selected for consideration by UK’s Memorial Hall Art Committee. The concepts chosen for review by the committee were acquired during a national search looking for site-specific installations to establish a rich aesthetic and conceptual dialogue with Memorial Hall itself and the mural by Ann Rice O’Hanlon that occupies a large wall in the main lobby. The artists’ presentations at UK are not the final concepts. Both artists commented during their public talks that the campus visit would have some impact on their final proposals which will be submitted to the UK committee in the coming month.
