Mapping Public Sculpture: Morningside and Barnard

UPDATE: On February 1, 2016, Google Maps Engine discontinued service, and unfortunately all maps created with this site were deleted. Art Properties will revisit options for creating and disseminating a map of the campus sculpture in the near future. — Roberto C. Ferrari, Curator of Art Properties

If you are planning a visit to the Morningside Campus or Barnard College, and you would like to know where the public sculpture is located, here is a map to help you. Each sculpture is identified with its own marker on the map that will give you basic information about the work of art. You can also bookmark the map for future reference by going to https://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/0/edit?mid=zzO_yMmGSiro.kPBAqqcLVfUA. If you take any photographs and would like to have them appear on this blog, please email them to us at artproperties@libraries.cul.columbia.edu.

    Nice map with good information.  But lots more sculpture in the environs (e.g., along Riverside Drive) that could be included.

      Dear William: Thank you for your comment. The map provides a sense of where the public outdoor sculpture is located at Columbia University, specifically on the Morningside Campus and Barnard College. There are in fact bas reliefs that we have yet to include, but sculpture in general along Riverside Drive, that is not owned by Columbia, would not be included.

    This is wonderful! I have lived in the neighborhood for many years but never taken the time look at the sculptures on Columbia campus. There are some major artists represented. I’m looking forward to doing a self-guided sculpture tour with the help of you map.

      Dear Constance: Thank you for your exuberance about the blog and map. We are working hard to publicize more about Columbia’s art collections, and the public outdoor sculpture is an obvious great start.
