Kathy Toth and Team, Keller Williams Realty, 734.426.6669 – Tony Rosenthal’s Interactive Cube at the University of Michigan.
When you are downtown Ann Arbor on the University of Michigan Campus, walk into the Courtyard of Regents Park between The Student Union and the LSA Building and push the Cube. The cube was designed by University of Michigan Alumnus Bernard (Tony) Rosenthal (1914-2009). Tony Rosenthal is known as the Sculptor of Public Art and his work is displayed in many large cities across the country.
The cube’s artistic name is “Endover” and was commissioned by the U-M Class of 1965 and installed in 1968. The cube weighs 2400 lbs. and is made out of painted CorTen Steel, stands 15-feet tall, and is easily pushed by even a young child into a smooth spin on point.
The Cube has been used over the years as a meeting place easily identified for students, clubs, and groups; as art projects using the cube’s base for timely look-a-likes such as a Rubic’s Cube, and a Dice with all the dots; and, of course, all the photos of students that have posed pushing, standing and climbing the Cube.
Enjoy seeing other pics of the Cube “Endover on U of M Campus over the years” To know more about the artist Tony Rosenthal read the book “Tony Rosenthal” written by Sam Hunter where the Cube at the University of Michigan is discussed along his other works and photographs. He had a BFA from The University of Michigan and from Cranbrook Academy of Art where he donated his archives. Read more about Tony Rosenthal on the Tony Rosenthal website. Zoom in on the cube below.
