“First Symphony”, Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana
The School of Music at Ball State has long been cited for innovative programs and national leadership in music education. The architect wanted a signature piece of public art, visible through the glass façade, as well as the focus of concertgoers attention within the foyer itself. “First Symphony” was created in response to those criteria. Music and movement are very much a part of its orchestration. By reflecting and refracting light the entire 23’ x 40’ wall is filled with a symphony of color, using only eight 75W low voltage lights.
