Exploring the tranquil setting of Penn State Abington

David met with students from Professor Love's fall installation class who will be assisting with the work this fall.

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!
