Curving Arcades at the east UA campus entrance off Campbell Avenue was created by Athena Tacha and installed in 1981.

The work consists of three independent sections of 16-foot-high split sheets of steel bolted to a submerged concrete base and painted in shades of blue on one side and red on the other.

Placing the contact microphones at one end of the sculpture and playing it at the opposite end (roughly 100 or so feet away) sends out vibrations that distort and morph wildly.
