They have on display in the Arboretum and along the Quad, these new designs towards sustainable environment. They chose to use Bird Houses as their medium of design with different types of materials to accomadate the small animals of flight.

Walk around campus to find these items of works of art and see if you can find one which is actually being used, they will only be up on display for the next two weeks or to the end of December.

These items of public art are among many other types of works of art on display throughout the campus. The "Eggheads" are famous due to their designer being one of the original Art teachers on campus as well as being wellknown from the Bay Area as an Post Modernist Artist.

Check the Dateline Website for more information or ask the tour guides who conduct tours on a daily basis for information for thier location on attempted losses.

The items are quite ingenious and indivilistic in their designs and worth a walk in the Fall frigid air to view these tiny houses on light posts.
