Last Thursday Visiting Artist Dahlia Elsayed conducted a public art project in the center of campus, the Ideological Tug of War. Using the game of Tug of War as a means of examining divisions and generating poetry, Elsayed mobilized a cast of hundreds to play a tiered tournament of tug of war and settle for all time the epic battle of Ideologies. As seems fitting at any university, Logic Won!… beating out a highly competitive field that included battles between Faith and the State, Money vs Passion, Spectacle vs Nothingness and Puppies vs Kittens (those cats left the little pups saying “me-ow”!).
