Students at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College teamed up with visiting artist Gabriel Bennett to create a sculpture that will be housed on the North Campus.
Bennett, who currently lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., and teaches at Kingsborough Community College, worked with students in Peter Goff’s sculpture class Monday and Tuesday.
“Students are hardworking,” Bennett said.
Bennett’s work, which is influenced by systems and processes, has been displayed around the world.
This has been his first trip to Salisbury.
“It’s been a nice break to get out of the city and recall what clean, fresh air is and all the space,” he said.
Bennett was invited to come as part of the college’s first Literary & Fine Arts Festival.
The sculpture, made up of cubes of varying sizes and materials, has been installed outside of Building 400.
