BARBARA KRUGER

Barbara Kruger was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1945. She studied at Syracuse University, Parsons School of Design, and the School of Visual Arts in New York. Her work has been exhibited worldwide.

 

 

The floor markers in the Gerlach and Fisher buildings work to integrate physical architecture with a more cerebral structure: that of the complex meshing of educational and intellectual activity. Composed of mosaic, marble, and steel, these markers serve as portals, as visual entries that signal the ambitions of the generous new facilities of the Fisher College of Business. The Gerlach marker greets the viewer with a consideration of knowledge and the world-changing power of ideas. The Fisher marker's circular motif focuses on the confluence of intellectual life, business practice, and uses of ambition and effectivity. Both markers utilize color, the richness of materials, and centrally located sites to welcome the viewer into spaces where the value of learning makes for both good business and a richer, more examined life.
