Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park and International Arts Center
East meets West is the Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park where people of all ages come together to celebrate, to dance, to sing, to learn, to find inspiration and to experience the world.
Made possible through generous contributions, the park includes an amphitheater, walking trails, lagoon and several prominent art installations. “Violata Pax Dove,” by the artist Fred “Nall” Hollis, is located in the Daniel Foundation of Alabama Plaza and is a symbol of both beauty and sorrow. Throughout the park, 200 replica terracotta warriors by the artist Huo Bao Zhu are displayed in exhibits representing the famous excavations in China.
千蠃官网国际网址Inside the International Arts Center, the Fred “Nall” Hollis Museum features Nall’s works from the 1960s to today, and the Huo Bao Zhu Gallery houses a revolving gallery of art and visiting exhibits. The Warriors Unearthed exhibit by artist Frank Marquette interprets the history behind the famous terracotta warriors.
Troy University continues to celebrate international art and provide additional learning spaces for students through the creation of the Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park and International Arts Center, located on its Troy Campus.
TROY formally opened the creative and learning spaces on Nov. 4, 2016, with a free dedication and concert inside the park’s amphitheater.
“The Cultural Arts Park and International Arts Center are where ‘East meets West’ at Troy University,” said First Lady of Troy University Janice Hawkins. “Students and guests will find an exceptional collection of international art that mirrors the global vision of Troy University.”
