To welcome colleagues to a new academic year, the University Health team spent a rainy morning getting to know a couple of public art pieces on campus. Transference is a monumental work by Ken McCall and Leslie Dixon behind the Environmental Research Building; it celebrates geothermal activity and research on campus. Rod Kagan’s bronze statues next to the Alumni and Friends Center honor Classical and Indigenous influences in Idaho.
