Transcript Around Campus J-.tspiio.ry J^cLmmirkj On the 600 acre UH campus, many things may seemed out of place to outsiders, but for students and alumni, the strange and unusual sights around campus were like old friends. Located in the UC was, "Untitled" a truly unusual piece which students claimed looked like a cougar battling a longhorn. Upon closer examination, students saw letters and numbers scattered throughout the statue as well as a smaller statue of an owl inside the larger sculpture and what appeared to be a man riding the longhorn. The piece was created by Houston native Bob fowler in 1966, who is better known for his wildlife studies at the zoo. Although students generally agreed that the half circles near the Science and Research Buildings were strange and unusual, the overall feeling toward them was one of favor. "Om," as the work is entitled, was two half circles sitting on top of one another with a tower next to them. The sculpture was built in 1969 by artist Menashe Kadishman from Tel Aviv, who was known for using a simple design in his art while seemingly defying gravity. The work was installed in its current location on campus in 1971. "It is really nice. I like that one. It's different from all the other statues. Simplicity is better than really complicated stuff sometimes. The artist was able to do that very well with this piece, some people can't do that very well," sophomore graphic communications major Michelle Nobleza said about "Om." In front of the Science and Research Building I, sat the famed "Naked Lady in a Box," more appropriately entitled yet less well known as, "Sandy: In Defined Space." Although many students refused to 'It's really amazing Hhat there's so much art and history on campus!" -Allison Husband comment on the sculpture, only a few students openly objected to it. They believed that it was somewhat offensive and should not have been displayed so openly. The piece is a 3rd edition of 5 from artist Richard McDermott Miller. "It's interesting... I don't really know how to comment on it. It's art, and there's nothing there that anyone hasn't seen or doesn't know about by the time they've gotten to college. It shouldn't be something that everyone is afraid of," freshman technology major Perry Li said. Other strange sights included a number of chairs displayed under the trees near the Athletics and Alumni Center, a number of fountains scattered about campus, faces carved into trees, and a few other sculptures in their enclave and gardens.

Once a fountain, it is now a home to the university's pigeons.

The fountain was a popular target for practical jokes. It was sudded, some people swam in it and one fraternity's stolen letters mysteriously appeared on the bridge across the fountain.
