Long Description:
Encounter is an abstract sculpture that looks like two piles of stacked metal blocks supporting a metal beam across the two stacks. The sculpture was acquired through the Percent for Art program

According to the artist:
"The base blocks are a metaphor for the very foundation of the university itself-the faculty, the library, the research facilities. The upper composition of blocks that actively engage and play off the base blocks is a metaphor for the activities that the university engenders-learning, questioning, exposure to ideas and to art-and are the vital and dynamic purposes of the university."
