Project History

The monumental sculpture Clock Knot by Mark di Suvero exemplifies the power of public art to transform the university’s landscape. Its installation coincided with the opening of the exhibition Reimagining Space: The Park Place Gallery Group in 1960s New York at the Blanton Museum of Art from 28 September – 18 January 2009.

The installation was initially made possible with a generous contribution from the College of Fine Arts and a loan from the artist and Paula Cooper Gallery. The acquisition of the sculpture was funded by the School of Engineering’s capital improvement project in 2013.
