The Student Activities Board’s Cultural Arts committee has partnered with a UK student to bring art to campus.
The installation of life- size polar bears were created by UK student┬áJason Scroggin, according to UKSAB’s website.
“The collection of pieces will engage you both physically and visually,” the website reads.
According to Scroggin’s website these animal abstractions are supposed to engage viewers.
“The suggestive forms and their specific arrangement imply docile behavior similar to animals in a petting zoo augmenting the way visitors approach and engage built form,” reads the website.

The installation will remain between the library and the Chemistry/ Physics building until Sept. 28 and is a part of SAB’s ‘Art Matters’ initiative.
