John Grade talk and reception

Friday, October 28, 2022

John Grade talk and reception: John Grade's monumental sculpture, "Emeritus," suspended in the middle of OSU's giant sequoias in the Memorial Union Quad, is inspired by the form of an absent tree. This event will include an informal viewing of the sculpture, complimentary food/no-host wine and beer, artist talk, informal conversation and book signing. Friday, Oct. 28 at 5:30 p.m. in the SEC Plaza.

Alongside the sculpture are sensors, based on work of the Long-Term Ecological Research program at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest, that will measure the tree trunk expansion, bird sounds and bioacoustics, and eDNA of animals and plants that live on the trees.
