Nathan Carter at the University of Houston

“Students arriving to the University of Houston will note a drastically changed campus. In addition to the new garages and residence halls, both first-time and returning Coogs will observe the latest sculpture in the university’s acclaimed Public Art Collection.

“Houston Radio Radar Reflectors” is a colorful screening wall connected to the new Cougar Place residence hall (located at Wheeler Avenue and Cullen Boulevard). The recently installed piece is the handiwork of artist Nathan Carter.

The piece includes six swirling aluminum sculptures located outside of the residence hall’s northern window and next to its outdoor patio. Each piece includes multicolored tiles in various shapes (triangles, circles, ovals, half-circles) and sizes. It is the first public artwork created by Carter.”
