David Buckley Borden traveled to Pennsylvania from the Boston area and spent a hot, early summer day on Penn State Abington’s campus.
Most of our time was outdoors, as the campus has a beautiful park-like setting that will be the site for Buckley Borden’s work. Buckley Borden’s visit began with a meeting with Chancellor Damian Fernandez.
Mike Hartey, Facilities Manager on the Abington campus, took us on an extensive campus tour, focusing on the outdoor spaces that connect academic buildings. Mid-day we were joined by three students from Yvonne Love’s fall 2019 Installation course. These students, along with the others enrolled in the course, will be a part of the development and fabrication of the project.
One of the highlights of the day was a visit to the Ogontz Archive Room within the library. The history of this campus is rich and well documented!
