David Gummer poses with one of his sculptures

David Gummer checked out all facets of the installation of Open Eyes.

Sculptor and Herron School of Art & Design alumnus Don Gummer has been a familiar face on the IUPUI campus this fall, unveiling a pair of his unique public art sculptures. One (called Open Eyes) is located beside the new Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute, and the other (called The South Tower in honor of one of the World Trade Center towers) is on the east side of Eskenazi Hall across from the emerging Indianapolis Cultural Trail.

Faculty members, Glick employees and researchers took advantage of an opportunity to watch a public art installation.

Gummer’s Open Eyes was unveiled in conjunction with the dedication ceremony for the Glick Eye Institute in August, and sits on the east side of the new facility between the institute and Long Hospital.
