Students walking around campus this weekend may have noticed a new addition to the University’s Arts Quad: A 46-foot tall blue, needle-shaped sculpture.

The structure — tilted “A Needle Woman: Galaxy was a Memory, Earth is a Souvenir” — is part of Cornell’s Council for the Arts’ biennial celebration, according to the University. It was designed by Kimsooja, a Korean artist-in-residence for the biennial, and is one of many sculptures that will be placed on campus as a part of the celebration.
