Lesson #5 from the cat on the deck

 

Frank White

As abruptly as he had returned, the cat on the deck disappeared again.  What first appeared to be the beginning of a routine of lounging on the deck has turned out to be a much less predictable lifestyle for this cat.

Let me see if I can reconstruct this.  He appeared on the deck scrawny and in need.  He finally got sympathy that was mobilized into action in the form of daily rations.hello

Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts helps restore Sculpture on Campus

 

APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative ArtsClarksville, TN – In 1985, a young Austin Peay State University art student named Mike Andrews used rebar, chicken wire and a bit of concrete to create a dazzling sculpture titled “Light Modulator.” The piece was a bright white, and it was designed to interact with the movement of the sun, playing with both light and shadow.

The sculpture was placed on a small, grassy hill outside the University’s Kimbrough Building, where it sat for almost three decades exposed to not only the sun, but also strong winds, downpours and numerous ice and snow storms. By last spring, “Light Modulator” was a dented, dingy gray slab of concrete that appeared to be sinking into the earth.
