This project had two areas identified as appropriate for art. One was the enclosed lobby area created by the semi transparent roofing of a space between the old building and the new facility. The other was the curved walkway wall outside the new theater / lecture hall that faces a large plaza toward the student union.

"Evolve" as explained by Allen Bishop:

Evolve is a colorful, semi-abstract expression of major steps in evolution as understood by current science. The groupings of panels portray 1) physics, cosmology and creation of the universe/galaxy from the "big bang" 2) geology, the sun and earth (showing continents, oceans and tectonic plates) and 3) biology and the development of life, including the rise of intelligent life.
