Cyclorama is a series of four sculptures placed between the Theater and Music buildings that create a contemporary stage set. Up close, the sculptures show themselves to be assembled from shapes and forms that tell archetypal stories in abstract form. At night LED lighting casts sharp colored shadows onto the trees, people, and nearby buildings.
