description:

A portion of the banner seen in this image appears in the publication "The Musical Arts Center | Indiana University | Bloomington, Indiana | Dedication Week Festival | April 15-21, 1972". The caption on that page reads, in part: "At the north end of the lobby of the Musical Arts Center, two banners by George Ortman hang back-to-back...The vivid geometry of the banners in the Musical Arts Center is visible from the outside of the building as well as from nearly any point in the lobby. Made of individual pieces of felt butted and sewn together, the banners are works of environmental art..."
