Holiday art sale seeks artists

Campus artists who would like to display their work at the annual ASUC Art Studio Holiday Sale are invited to contact the art studio at 642-3065.

The sale - to be held Dec. 5-9 in the art studio space on Lower Sproul Plaza- features handmade, one-of a kind gifts, including original ceramics, crafts and photography.

Barrows Hall access to be changed

The Barrows Hall breezeway is closed to pedestrians and vehicles until further notice as part of the building's seismic retrofit project. Pedestrian access to Barrows's west end, near Sproul and off of Barrow Lane, remains unchanged. Access on the east end is available on the south side only. The northeast entrance, across from Anthony Hall, is closed. The exits at each end of the building will remain open.

Handicap access into Barrows is available at the southeast entrance only. Near the intersection of Bowditch and Bancroft, a ramp in front of Hearst Gym leads to a path that passes the Pacific Film Archive and Hearst Field Annex. Access to Barrows is through the door at the end of that path.

The temporary access road between North Field and Hearst Gym is too steep for handicap use; it is intended to provide temporary access to construction, service and emergency vehicles.

To get e-mail updates on the Barrows project, contact cpquestions@ to add your address to the list.

Pedestrian bridge closed during construction

he pedestrian bridge located at the southwest end of campus near Oxford and Center streets will be closed beginning the second week of November to accommodate an infrastructure upgrade.

Underground utilities work will require the bridge be closed through Dec. 20. Construction workers will install a water line that will supply fire hydrants to be installed later.

During the bridge closing, pedestrians will have to walk around the creek by using Frank Schlessinger Way (labeled as Cross Campus Way on campus maps) or the West Crescent, as indicated by announcements posted near the bridge.
