Untitled, 1974

Robert Bruno

Steel and Limestone

This sculpture was created by a man who believed that one person could change the lives of many. His dedication to inspiring others through education and art was surpassed only by his love of passing knowledge onto others. While Robert Bruno may be gone, the legacy he left behind enriches the world and those whose lives he touched. Bruno, a former professor in the College of Architecture, is best known for the creation of the Steel House in Ransom Canyon. This untitled sculpture, a fusion between art and architecture, is said to have been the inspiration for the Steel House and one of his few remaining sculptures. It was moved to the Texas Tech campus in late January 2015. The presence of one of Bruno’s works at the Architecture building serves as a memorial to Bruno and provides an educational site for students.
