We’ve asked special people in the community to create custom-made Tool Kits for Open Field. Designed to excite the creator and thinker in all of us, Tool Kits will be available to check out from the Tool Shed. Keep your eyes peeled for a string figures kit built by Mike Haeg and a personal postal service kit designed by Jenni Undis of Lunalux.

This new addition to the Walker campus comprises four massive boulders, each ranging in weight from eight to 13 tons. Transformed with veneers of high-gloss stainless steel in pink, blue, gold, and lavender, the sculpture generates an entrancing interplay of natural light and reflection, weight and buoyancy.
