There are three free standing brick walls sitting on hidden footers. Each wall has a tile mosaic - each showing dancing Bavarians - lederhosen, dirndls?, beer steins, etc. In addition, there are two, two-dimensional friezes made of steel (cor-ten?) with the same theme. The two friezes show costumed young couples, dancing happily. The tile mosaic wall haning shows individuals also dancing happily. The dancing girl wall consists of 15 brightly colored panels each 18"" x 21"" (width x height) and the wall is 96"" x 100"" x 12"" (width x height x thickness.) The dancing clown wall, 100"" x 118"" 12"" has 12 brightly colored panels, each 18"" x 21"". The dancing burgher wall, 101"" x 119"" x 12"", has 15 brighly colored panels and shows a hefty middle aged man who clearly has defted more than one stein of beer in his life. The two-dimensional steel pieces are semi-circular, 105"" in diameter, anchor to the east and north sides of an inside corner wall on the northeast corner of the college center building.
