Smack dab in the middle of the music school and just a stone's throw away from both the old Annenberg building and the School of Cinematic Arts (SCA), this secret garden offers a moment of calm amidst the daily rigors of college life. On any given day, you can catch scholars young and old basking between art structures.

Francisco Zuniga's stoic "Evelia de Pie" was a gift to SCA in 1974. Students also get a big kick out of the "Reclining Male Nude" nonchalantly chilling under a tree on the grass. Miki Benoff's "Vista for a Rare Spirit," is also among the crowd favorites.

“The one behind the tree there,” points out Nathan Lutz, who came across the public art space while on campus for an Orchestra Management workshop this past summer. “It’s   kind of an amber, whitish color, it reminds me of something carved out of bone, so that one catches my eye the most.”
