Crown Center for the Humanities
The Edward Crown Center for the Humanitites provides a space where students, professors, and visitors can benefit from an interdisciplinary approach to the humanities. The space includes classrooms, an art gallery, and a 250-seat auditorium. The Center is named for the late Edward Crown, M.D., a Loyola alumnus. The building was completed and dedicated in 1984.
"The Unfolding" is located in the lobby of the Crown Center for Humanities. The dots and dashes cut from the horizontal bars spell "love" in Morse code, and the twelve polished steel rods in the center are "candles", symbolic of technology.
Guido Brink is the sculptor of the 300-pound steel and enamel sculpture, "The Unfolding".
