Located off Lomita Mall, George Segal's sculptural work 'Gay Liberation' was vandalized and restored twice, in 1984 and 1994. While the work was offsite for restoration, members of the Stanford community posed together, occupying the social and visual space that the statues had claimed. More on the story, link in bio.

Keep palm and carry on. As per recent tradition, the 128th Stanford Commencement began with a costumed procession called the Wacky Walk. Welcome to the family, Class of 2019! Tag yourself and your friends. (📸: @the_biofall, PhD student)
Closed for renovations since 2016, Frost Amphitheater reopened May 18 with Stanford Concert Network’s eighth annual Frost Music and Arts Festival. R&B artists Kali Uchis and Jorja Smith co-headlined, and free ponchos were handed out to keep the party going through unseasonable rain. Frost’s former concrete slab has been replaced with a modern stage and technology, performers have green rooms, audience members can enjoy a full audiovisual system (not to mention plentiful restrooms), and eventgoers can dine at the Grove, a parklike food area on the grounds. #1000Words by Harrison Truong, ’14/@stanfordlive.
