A friend and I made the expedition to the Hendrix College campus to see this:

A little background:  Hendrix College has outgrown its original campus, expanding across a busy roadway.  After endless and disruptive construction, the city of Conway now has a huge double roundabout with a tunnel beneath it, allowing students to cross to the health and wellness facility and The Village at Hendrix,  

A tunnel beneath a street does not sound inviting, but this is rather enchanting.  A visit to is worthwhile.  Harmonic Fugue is a permanent installation.


  1. Cool!

    In general, you can tell that pedestrian tunnels sounded like a great idea to city planners just after WWII. There are a lot of them in England, and by and large, boy are they spooky.

  2. I wonder if this is similar to the passageway at the Detroit airport that goes between the domestic and international terminals.

  3. Gail: Janney has done a number of installations, but I do not recall seeing Detroit airport on the list at his website. I imagine others are doing some of this kind of work...

    Michael: I agree about the pedestrian tunnels, though I did think the toad passageways were sweet.
