Mining Minds Special Lighting Commemorates Honors Convocation

The “Mining Minds” pickaxe sculpture at UTEP’s University Avenue roundabout will be illuminated in blue and orange Sunday evening, April 22, 2018, in honor of The University of Texas at El Paso’s Honors Convocation.

Each spring, the University salutes the achievements of students, staff and faculty in areas of service, leadership and academics. Numerous awards will be presented at this year’s Honors Convocation, including the UTEP Top Ten Senior Awards, which are given to students who have achieved success academically and through their University and community involvement.

“Mining Minds” is an iconic piece of public art installed in 2010 to enhance the UTEP campus. At night, orange lights illuminate the steel structure while light from LEDs emanates from the perforated “ones” and “zeroes” at each end of the pick.

On special occasions, including historic dates, major annual milestones and to celebrate special accomplishments, the pick is illuminated in blue and orange.

The ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. April 22 in Magoffin Auditorium.
