You Are Here, 2006

Kim Brown
(American, born 1954)

Location: Eastern Washington University, Cheney

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Artist Kim Brown's You Are Here draws quiet attention to two habitual student paths that cross each other, on the Eastern Washington University campus in Spokane. She has marked each path with granite cobblestones, prompting students to notice their daily rituals. At one side, the stones rise to different levels and serve as a place for students and staff to gather and sit. The artist notes that the paths are “reminders that intersecting moments comprise our lives, experienced by paying attention to here and now." You can view a book of collected quotes and images that inspired the sculpture, linked above. A copy of this book is located in the Eastern Washington University library.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Eastern Washington University.
