New glowing artwork coming to the Pit

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – University of New Mexico Lobo basketball fans will see something new and glowing at the Pit.

The artwork will be called “Inside/Out” and will feature a permanent electric light for the Pit’s glass stair tower.

You will be able to see it from inside and outside the arena.

New York artist Ivan Toth Depeña was chosen by the State Department of Cultural Affairs for the project.

The artwork is expected to be completed sometime this year.

The project is part of New Mexico’s Art in Public Places program. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
