Ten-Story-Tall Pole With People Walking Up It
It's the kind of campus outdoor sculpture that causes first-time passersby -- even the ones who aren't drunk -- to do a double-take. A procession of people appear to be strolling up a pole into the clouds. "Walking to the Sky" was built by Carnegie Mellon alumnus Jonathan Borofsky in 2006. It's 100 feet tall, weighs seven tons, and has a reputation for swaying in the wind.
A similar sculpture in Dallas, Texas -- with a less sturdy pole -- was taken down in 2010.
