dc.descriptionOne of the individual eyes, showing electric light in the "pupil"; In 2001, the 75th anniversary of the Williams College Museum of Art, the museum commissioned Eyes, a permanent outdoor public art installation by Louise Bourgeois with nine elements. WCMA worked with Bourgeois, her studio, and the Office of Dan Kiley, Landscape Architects and Planners on the site design. The work consists of four pairs of eyes and one monumental eye cluster formed from granite and bronze. Ranging in height from three to seven feet, some of the sculptures double as benches. The eyes are fitted with outdoor lighting, in the "pupils", and emanate bluish beams at night. Source: Williams College Museum of Art [website]; http://wcma.williams.edu/ (accessed 6/19/2012)en_US
