gardenblock Pavilion

To support interdisciplinary and creative sustainability on campus, a student-led We Mean Green Fund project brought an icon of sustainability to campus! Inspired by UNT's own Community Garden, the “gardenblock” sculpture provides a shelter and gathering place for students and serves as a catalyst for forming connections centered on a shared goal of sustainability across campus.

After gracing the UNT campus with its captivating presence, the time has come for gardenblock to undergo deinstallation. Although it may be bittersweet to bid farewell to this remarkable sculpture, the deinstallation ensures that new artistic endeavors can find their place in the ever-evolving landscape of UNT. The deinstallation of gardenblock will be conducted with the utmost care and precision, ensuring the preservation of its integrity and artistic value. Trained professionals, experienced in handling art installations, will meticulously disassemble the sculpture, considering its intricate design and the materials used in its construction. Once gardenblock has been safely disassembled, each component will be carefully packed and hauled to Albuquerque, NM, but the legacy of gardenblock and it's impact at UNT will live on. 

The deinstallation of gardenblock opens exciting possibilities for future artistic endeavors on the UNT campus. While this sculpture bids farewell, it paves the way for new and innovative artworks to take its place, enriching the campus environment and inspiring future generations of artists and art enthusiasts.
