Press and \peportH WEDNESDAY October 9, 1991 New art has some students asking a $70,000 question: What is this? By Lori Robinson ! IFF Staff Writer LIFE Photo/Brent Henderson John Pewinski, Romeo freshman, glances at the new sculpture near Dow Science Complex on his way to class Tuesday afternoon. Amidst occasional heckling from passers-by, San Francisco artist Cork Marcheschi installed his plastic, neon and steel creation outside the1 northeast corner of"the Dow Science Complex Monday morning. Russ Herron. vice president for University Relations, accompanied the artist while the sculpture was being installed at the site. "One student came by and said 'look at that piece of s—,' " Herron said. Despite student critique, the state of Michigan allocated about $75,000. roughly .5 percent of the cost of Science II, to fund the artist's commission. The sculpture was funded through former Gov. James Blanchard's Art in Public Places Project, which allocated a maximum of 1 percent of state funding for state-financed buildings to artwork. *».*jjtw>»'^;,*cwv:^-.*-~^^:-j-Is 'j—«*■»«■«?* The Art in Public Places Project was wiped out by this year's across-the-board state budget cuts. However, Marcheschi was commissioned to make the sculpture last year. "That particular piece took a dozen people six months to finish," Marcheschi said, referring to the neon piece. Divided equally, the sculpture's cost would generate $6,250 for each person involved in its construction. Marcheschi said the amount he received from his CMU commission is an average allotment for large-scale sculptures. The artist said he has been commissioned for other jobs that ranged between $10,000 and $120,000 in cost. Jerry Smoke, art chairman, said he sees the installation of the sculpture in the same light as any other public or private commis- Artist talks about work. See page 8. sion available to artists. "I think it's important to understand that competitions are normally set up to be open and fair." Smoke said. "It's kind of a trade-off between fair play at a state or national level and a local buddy system." As the result of a national search. Marcheschi was chosen to build the sculpture by the Michigan Commission on Art in Public Places. "I love it." Herron said. "It's something different for this campus. "It seems to me that since we've known about people, they've had art." he said. "You cant deny that aspect of existence." Marcheschi gave a slide lecture Monday night in the Bovee University Center Auditorium, explaining an approximate 20-year continuum of sculpture to an audience of 26 administrators and professors and two students. • • Doug Franz. Mount Pleasant senior, said the project cost too much. "It's questionable why they would spend so much money for something like that," Franz said. "It's pretty extravagant, what with the clerical strike and all." Lisa Lundberg, Midland sophomore, also found the installation questionable. "I think it's kind of funny," she said. "First of all, I don't really think it goes with the buildings around here. "I just think it's a waste of money for something like that. There are a lot of people in this state who can't afford the necessities of life." Early Tuesday morning, a sign reading "$70,000?" was affixed to the sculpture and remained there most of the day. President upset with senators' resolutions By Crystal Harmon LIFT: Assistant News Editor The Academic Senate passed all eight resolutions prepared by its "No Confidence Committee" Tuesday afternoon, and President Edward B. Jakubauskas called the actions "a big mistake." "It seems like (the Senate) is setting up a university within a university," Jakubauskas said in a telephone interview Tuesday night. "What are they trying to prove? "Furthermore, I think they should rescind the no confidence vote. The Senate has no business involving itself in bargaining. Now that the clericals are back at work, they should rescind the vote." The ad hoc five-member' committee presented its list of suggestions to follow up on its Sept. 3 resolution of no confidence in the who is Arsenate? — JOoroXoTl The 1990-91 attendance record of elected Academic Senators 1.

Besides senators elected by departments, nine administrators and six students are appointed each year to serve as voting members. The lowest attendance rate of all was earned by student senator Matthew Louks. Dearborn Heights junior, who attended three of 13 meetings. As for the administrators. Dean Ron Johnstone of the College of Arts and Sciences ranked highest, having attended all 16 meetings. President Edward B. Jakubauskas had the poorest attendance, making nine of the meetings. The A-Senate Tuesday called for Jakubauskas, who has attended none of this year's meetings, to retake his seat with the group. "I have been spending more time on external- activities," Jakubauskas said. "The provost See ABSENT Page 2 Regulation will affect teacher ed programs By Brian D. Bell LiFF Stnff Writer New state mandates for education majors and minors might prevent some CMU students from student teaching or enrolling in advanced professional education courses next fall. Effective Dec. 15, students planning to student teach starting in fall 1992 must first pass state subject matter tests, said Liz Hitch, director of teacher education. New regulations also will require students to pass a state basic skills test in math, reading and writing before they are admitted into a teacher education program, Hitch said. Hitch and teacher education officials from other state universities learned of the requirements Sept. 20. They stem from a law amended in 19-86 and will See TEACHER Page 1 6 tv*.
