Eat your lunch alfresco on Friday

Bring your lunch and start your weekend respite tomorrow during University Museums' "Music in the Courtyard" (noon to 1 p.m., Food Sciences Building courtyard). Enjoy the melodic musings of Ken Jolls, Professor Emeritus of chemical and biological engineering, as he plays an electric piano among the sculptures in the Chuck Ginnever: Rashomon temporary exhibit. Some chairs will be provided; no rain date is planned.

Installed last November, Rashomon features 15 identical sculptures placed in 15 different positions. Earlier this spring, ISU statistics students began rotating the sculptures each week. University Museums is photographing the changes from the same vantage point weekly, and will piece the images together after the exhibition closes July 1.
