Untitled is a public sculpture by American artist Cary Chapman on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, which is near downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. It sits below the back steps of the IUPUI University Library and the Business/SPEA building in Wood Plaza, closest to the corner of New York Street and Blackford Street.

It is a steel sculpture that measures 16 feet high, 4 feet 8 inches long, and 3 feet in width.

Description[edit]

Untitled consists of arched elements welded together to form a tall abstract sculpture.

Untitled was created as part of an exhibition in 2001 organized by the IUPUI Campus Art Committee. A sculpture student at Herron School of Art and Design, Chapman was one of three artists chosen to be included in the exhibition. Other artworks chosen included Orange Curves, by Brent Gann, and Zephyr, by Steve Wooldridge. Chapman, a senior, was given a stipend to complete the 16-foot-tall (4.9 m) sculpture. The artworks were intended to remain on view for two years, but Untitled remains on campus on loan from the artist.[1]
