Eskenazi Art Museum features the "Light Totem", an IU staple, tradition among students and is on the IU Bucket List. The Light Totem was constructed in 2007 by Rob Shakespeare, IU professor Emeritus in Lighting Design. Students can often be found with their feet on the wall and backs on the sidewalk experiencing a different point of view.
"It is LED, has random patterns of lights, it has all of these different LED lights that go all the way up it, there are dozens of them. They cast all kinds of crazy light on the museum at night." Said Manager of Public Relations and Marketing, Eskenazi Museum of Art at IU, Abe Morris
