​Finals got you down? Take a break and come celebrate the grand opening of our new Backyard!

Over the past ten weeks, we have been drilling and painting away in order to create this awesome new space that brings life back into our side of campus! Our Installation on the East side of the Art Building is decked out with a bright new coat of color on every surface, a wooden tower prototype for future seating and awesome pattern work along the fence.unnamed-1

Bring your friends, put on your mittens, and help us kick off our new place and come play with us in our new Backyard!

Hot drinks and snacks will be provided as well!

A group of dedicated PSU students and faculty have collaborated with College of the Arts, Facilities and Planning, Architecture, Engineering and the Institute for Sustainable Solutions to create our unique art installation that softens the previously harsh landscape of the empty Trimet lot on the East side of the Art Building. The Backyard brings a creative presence to our side of campus that can be enjoyed by all who discover it!
