Description of the Indra Project

Installed on July 28, 2012, Indra is Columbus State's fourth Percent for Art structure on campus. Commissioned for the Columbus Hall/Library renovation, this stainless steel piece, created by Polish-American artist Olga Ziemska, is attached to the building's south wall. The interconnected symbols, which are meant to represent the college's majors and programs, are connected to the upper right corner of the building near the library's main entrance. Fifteen of the largest symbols of Indra, were directly selected by Columbus State students through a survey the artist conducted in person at the 2012 campus "Welcome Back"  event.
