The Three Pillars of Adams State
Pillars ~ capturing the evolution of an institution ~
This sculptural public art project was designed and created by sculptor Dana Provence to celebrate Adams State becoming a university. On August 7, 2012 Adams State College became Adams State University. The work consists of three, seven and a half foot tall sculptural forms, one made of hexagonal basalt stone, one of bronze, and one of stainless steel to represent the three stages of Adams State, respectively: Teachers’ College, Liberal Arts College, and now, University. Joining a host of other public art on campus, this new addition has been sited at the Southeast corner of Richardson Hall.
