Toshiko Takaezu


"Endless Circle" Rededication Ceremony



Interested in learning more about Toshiko Takaezu and some of the history behind the Endless Circle ?  Andruss Library has added a new page on our website with links to books, articles, websites, films, interviews and historical photographs all about Toshiko Takaezu and her connection to Bloomsburg University:   http://guides.library.bloomu.edu/ToshikoTakaezu
 
On Thursday October 6th, the BU College of Liberal Arts hosted a rededication ceremony for the reinstallation of the Endless Circle (1989) bronze bell on a new structure, a white oak Japanese Gate.   Bloomsburg University commissioned the ceramic artist, Toshiko Takaezu, in the mid 1980’s to fashion a cast bronze bell in memory of Dr. Percival Roberts, beloved chairperson of the Art Department and a good friend of the artist.  Endless Circle was created on campus in the old Simon Hall Sculpture Studios, using the lost wax bronze sculpture method and through a collaborative effort involving Toshiko Takaezu and Bloomsburg University ceramic arts faculty and students.  Dean Brown gave the opening remarks and Emeritus Professor Karl Beamer presented the keynote address in the Sculpture Garden outside the Andruss Library.   Emeritus Professor Beamer continued his talk about the history of the making of the Endless Circle on the third floor of the Andruss Library, where the ceramic art of Toshiko Takaezu is permanently displayed. 

Also located on the third floor is BU Archivist Bob Dunkelberger's exhibit Beautifying Bloomsburg: Outdoor Art on the University Campus  showcasing the history behind all of the beautiful sculpture located here on campus, including historical records and photos related to the Endless Circle
