Bill Fisher '85

"In my sophomore year, an aesthetic, pedagogical, and constitutional debate erupted..."

"... within the ranks of art students and faculty. A renegade sculptor had apparently assembled a guerrilla wire and steel installation in front of Andrews Hall, without permits or permission. It was an either an eyesore, magnificent, vandalism, free expression, junk, or art, depending on who you spoke to."

"The decision to leave it in place or have it removed was taken out of the hands of the faculty when the workmen arrived to install the thing, the base support for a new satellite dish, on the roof of Andrews." —Bill Fisher
