Last semester I remember seeing one or two of these signs as I made my way from Scripps Campus to the Media Studies Center on Pitzer campus. I do not frequent other places on Pitzer campus so I did not even know these signs were elsewhere. I saw the signs and thought they were interesting but never really gave them much thought. I kind of just dismissed them as some Pitzer signs and did not think that they had anything to do with me. I just let them be and carried on my way.
It was not until I was going to write this blog post that I even thought to look up information about these signs; to be honest, I did not even realize that there was something to look into. I am really surprised and intrigued at the information I found and I am a little disappointed in myself that I was not aware of this last semester.
So if there is anyone else who, like me, was not informed about this amazing installation I have some resources that I found helpful.
I found out about the artist and the installation here: http://www.pomona.edu/museum/exhibitions/2013/nuance-of-sky/
I also found a video where the artist explains the installation. I found this video really helpful and insightful. http://vimeo.com/60673043
There is also a campus map that shows where the different signs are located. http://www.pomona.edu/museum/exhibitions/2013/nuance-of-sky/files/native-hosts-installation-map.pdf
I am very touched that this installation exists and I think its presence will help serve as a daily reminder of the history of this land. Now that I know more about the signs I am eager to take a walk around Pitzer campus and see more of the installations.
