The UCSF Library is thrilled to announce the installation of a three-story sculpture by acclaimed artist Sarah Sze in the Parnassus Campus Library's south stairwell. This dynamic piece has been described by the artist as a "suspended spinning metropolis" and can be experienced from the exterior or interior of the building.

The sculpture was commissioned by the Chancellor’s Committee on Art, Honors, and Recognition using discretionary funds from Chancellor Emeritus Bishop. Learn more about the artist, the sculpture, and its installation.

The Library also acquired a book about Sarah Sze's works, which can be accessed in the south stairwell on the 5th floor.
