PSS floral design exhibition takes cues from James Surls’ ‘Complete Fragment’
By: Norman Martin
The atrium of Texas Tech University's Bayer Plant Science Building was filled on Thursday (May 9) with a colorful and striking mix of flowers. Several large flower arrangements were featured as part of the final project for students in the Department of Plant and Soil Science's 2310 Floral Design class. This semester's sessions were led by Russell Plowman, an instructor of horticulture. The theme for this year's program was based on a floral interpretation of "Complete Fragment," part of the Texas Tech's public art collection by Texas native James Surls.
Located at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center, the three bronze and stainless-steel sculptures that make up "Complete Fragment" are big. One is 8 feet by 9 feet by 10 feet. Another is 9.5 feet by 8 feet by 11 feet, and the third is 11 feet by 12 feet by 18 feet. Each piece represents the origin of life through the depiction of molecules, as well as growth as represented by flowers.
