Power-washed pyramid

A bright, sunny Wednesday became the perfect time for eight student workers to scrub approximately 128 Marianist Hall dorm room trash cans. They organized an efficient system of handling such a large number of items to be washed by giving everyone a job: adding liquid soap to the cans, blasting away the dirt with the sprayer, rinsing or stacking to let them dry in the sun. The most efficient and visually pleasing way in which to dry them, they decided, was to form a pyramid.

When school starts in the fall and students return to their dorm rooms, they’ll most likely never know that their trash cans were once part of a public sculpture this day.
