It’s a spring tradition in Utica, New York. Every class of sculpture students at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute Art School gets to participate in the making of the Equinox Bracelets, following a style of work laid down at the Bauhaus in 1920s Germany. The students begin work on the project while they are freshmen and complete the fabrication during their sophomore year. The circles are constructed out of bent plywood left over from another project and stand ten feet high. The colored lights are set inside holes drilled into the wood. The geodesic dome which holds the sculpture together was also built by the students.
