PRESS RELEASE: Margo Sawyer Unveils New Installation at UHV
August 31, 2018 - University of Houston - Victoria
Visitors to the University of Houston-Victoria will be captivated by a new installation by internationally known artist Margo Sawyer. “Synchronicity of Color: Victoria” now hangs from the ceiling in the three-story high atrium of the University North building.
The artwork consists of seven hand-painted laminated glass elements suspended from the ceiling. Positioning of the artwork adjacent to the staircase allows observers to experience the rich color, textured patterns, subtle movement and the contemplative nature of the artwork from varying perspectives.
