“Commissioned by the Arts Council of Princeton, the ACP Donor Wheel is a permanent donor recognition sculpture for the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, NJ. Placed in the building’s rotunda/lobby is a motorized disk, on which are placed approximately 2000 names, loosely grouped by the first letter of the donor’s last name. Adjacent to the sculpture is a control panel with a button for each letter of the alphabet (excluding Q and X). When a viewer wishes to find a particular name, he or she pushes the corresponding letter on the control panel. The disk rotates and stops at the requested letter and displays all the names corresponding to the requested letter by back-lighting them with white LEDs.”
