Inspired by the title of the first chapter in Herman Melville’s "Moby Dick," William Bennett’s 25 by 22-foot sculpture titled Loomings will be installed in front of Fayerweather Hall from Wednesday, March 20 through Tuesday, April 30.

In an artist statement, Bennett describes his steel, wood, fabric, water and earth sculpture as a metaphor of travel, "capable of journeying beyond the horizon to memories of time and place where our collective identity still, in part, resides."

Bennett created the piece for a riverfront exhibit in New York City and last summer it was exhibited at the Whaling Museum in New Bedford, Mass.

An opening reception will be held Friday, March 22, 5 to 7 p.m.
