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. Now, for the first time, the history, artists, and significance of these RIT artworks are revealed in View It!—the guidebook and walking art tour.
The publication of this guide to the art and architecture on campus coincides with RIT's 175th anniversary. RIT has many reasons to celebrate this important milestone, and among them is its artistic heritage, to which the university has always been committed. The artworks illustrated here, as well as others too numerous to include, serve as important sources of inspiration for students, faculty, and the entire campus. Join the RIT community in appreciating its public art through this guide. Explore and View It! Visit RIT's companion Art on Campus website: http://artoncampus.rit.edu
