The Creative Inquiry sculpture represents the elements that make up a small DNA molecule known as a plasmid. This circular molecule carries the genes that have proven to be vital in the study of molecular biology and genetics. The sculpture, in the form of a plasmid shape, is reflective of the various programs that will come together and inhabit the new building. It creates a “new molecule” that confirms the potential of new interdisciplinary endeavors.
