CSUF Art As you pass these pieces of artwork during your walk, here is some additional information about each piece that you cannot find on the plaques displayed. Kaikoo H. XI This sculpture, developed by artist Betty Gold while in Hawaii, is located on the lawn in front of McCarthy Hall. Kaikoo is Hawaiian for high tide and the “H” is an abbreviation for the sculpture’s holistic concept that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Terrace Screen As you pass the courtyard of the Visual Arts Center, you will notice the non-figurative, steel sculpture by Bernard Rosenthal. It was constructed in sections and later connected to create an interlocking sculpture, commissioned specifically for our campus. Wall Gazing Gallery This environmental sculpture, located in the courtyard of the Visual Arts Center, is a tribute to Asian culture. The story behind the name of the sculpture is that a legendary saint meditated for seven years gazing at the wall of a cave without blinking. This sculpture is unique in that people can sit on it and gaze into the reflecting pool below.
