Zook Hall adds interactive lighting display

Chandelier-ground-floorThe newly remodeled Zook Hall has received a fascinating interactive display created by artist Jen Lewin.  The installation, entitled Flux Chandelier, is suspended from the first floor atrium through a circular opening to the ground floor lobby.  Two smaller displays are located in the rear entry facing the Student Union and in a first floor lounge area facing the Common.  As people walk beneath or near the chandeliers, the colors change.
