Albert Paley's Sentinel has transformed the face of RIT: a dramatic focal point in the heart of campus, at the crossroads for all RIT community activity. As the largest sculpture at any American university, its presence, while inciting both admiration and debate, perhaps best represents an academic institution's highest ideal: the ability to foster and freely express a creative idea. This important sculpture is now the subject of a book by RIT Cary Graphic Arts Press.

Undulating metal planes shout "View It!" from a cafeteria wall. Richly hued, monumental square murals pulse their welcome in a grand lobby. A multitude of fine works on paper awaits contemplation in the library. A titan sculpture of sinuous steel beckons visitors onto campus. Numerous galleries and exhibition spaces provide opportunities for art appreciation and critique. These pieces and venues, and many more, find their homes throughout the cohesive fabric of patterned brick that makes up RIT's unique campus.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the RIT Big Shot, this card set features 8 of the 23 photographs taken in the series. The Big Shot Story At the end of the 1986-87 school year, Professors William DuBois and Michael Peres were analyzing the ups and downs of the recently completed academic year. In discussing new ways to teach electronic flash photography and problem-solving to the second-year Biomedical Photography students, it was decided that an extracurricular "painting with light" project should be tried.

Greeting Cards: Schoen Place Big Shot

Continuing the annual night-time "painting with light" photography project, Schoen Place, Pittsford New York was chosen to be RIT's Big Shot No. 24. Schoen Place is located on the Erie Canal in Pittsford New York. Referred to by some as the Eighth Wonder of the World, the canal was completed in 1825 and links the waters of Lake Erie in the west to the Hudson River. When constructed it included 18 aqueducts to carry the canal over ravines and rivers, and 83 locks, with a rise of 568 feet from the Hudson River to Lake Erie.
