Adela Andea's "Primordial Gardens" promotes discussion about the impact of human actions on the natural environment.

WHAT: The College of Human Sciences will host a dedication ceremony for artist Adela Andea's "Primordial Gardens," the newest piece of public art on the Texas Tech University campus. Speakers will include Andea; Linda Hoover, dean of the College of Human Sciences; and Michael Molina, vice chancellor for Facilities Planning & Construction. The event is free and open to the public.

The piece consists of seven sculptural units created with an outer shell of colorful elements, LED lighting, and exterior floating components of flex neon, coils and Plexiglas tubes. It encourages inspiration and contemplation of the impact of human actions on the natural environment, Andea said.

The installation is suspended from the El Centro gathering area ceiling and is experienced from below by looking up into the space. It also can be viewed at eye level through windows on the second floor. Andea said the piece has brought vibrancy and new energy to the area.

Andea is known for her uniquely illuminated sculptures and has created installations in various locations throughout Texas using electronics, lights and plastic. Photos of other installations can be found on her website.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
