Art installation created by Rocio Perez, a student in Professor Robin Hill's Intermediate Sculpture Class entitled Addiction, 2019, features dozens of fake plaster cell phones hanging from a popular ginkgo tree in the UC Davis Arboretum's East Asian Collection.
Last Saturday, January 24, 2015, students and members of the Environmental Club at UC Davis assisted staff from the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden (APG) in planting a strip of landscape along the curve of Garrod Drive just outside the Vet Med horse corral and across from our teaching nursery.
Solar-powered light sculptures created by 48 students in Studio in Sustainable Design (Design 127B) taught by Design Department faculty Ann Savageau and Bob Morgan, are currently on display in the Arboretum’s newly-constructed California Native Plant GATEway Garden.
As the result of a collaboration between the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden and the UC Davis Department of Design, the arboretum and other parts of the Davis campus will become student galleries for Ann Savageau’s “Sustainable Design” class.
Professor Robin Hill’s students created and installed four public art pieces last week in the arboretum and on the main campus; the installations are scheduled to stay in place until around December 21.
