Western New Mexico University
When Western New Mexico University created its newly landscaped sculpture garden, they called on New Mexico artists. Funded by Art in Public Places of the New Mexico Arts council, WNMU selected a William Freer sculpture as the main work leading to the university's historic Light Hall.
The sculpture, titled This End Up is a perfect match for the rusted steel accents throughout the campus. Built of steel, stainless steel and dichroic glass, the sculpture reflects the natural materials featured in the garden.
The accompanying plaque reads, "The wind spins down from New Mexico mountains, hurling the moon to both horizons while the sun sings the colors of our dazzling sky."
