About this Event
The red bricks that make up Harvard’s built environment have witnessed centuries of personal and public history, from individual transformation to institutional upheaval. This participatory art installation features the work of undergraduates who have carved their personal mark (words, designs, etc.) onto a brick—the age-old material that constitutes our campus.
Inclusions, created by Kiana Rawji ’23, Cecilia Zhou ’23, and Luke Reeve MDE ‘23, affirms that just as Harvard has shaped its students, so too have the students shaped Harvard; the student bricks will serve as records of formative contact between entities, expressions of individual identity, presence, and power in public space. During the month of April 2022, the bricks will be used to create a cohesive installation in Harvard Yard near Thayer Hall.
Supported by the Office for the Arts, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and the OFA Ceramics Program.
