These two Alexander Calder "stabiles," just outside the Museum, are on loan. In 1968 an anonymous gift in remembrance of an Army Air Corps alumnus who perished in WWII, led to the acquisition of 22 sculptures. It was stipulated that the sculptures should be installed outside so that students and community can experience them in the course of daily life. Since then, several additional gifts of sculpture have been incorporated into the campus.
Atmosphere and Environment X by Louise Nevelson, installed in 1971 next to Firestone Library and facing Nassau Street, was her first large outdoor sculpture executed in Cor-Ten steel. The sculpture can be enjoyed even by passers by who do not enter the campus.
