Labyrinth: A new gathering place on the Portland Campus

March 07, 2012

Behind the University of New England Art Gallery on the Portland Campus, there's a maze of sorts. Well actually, it's a labyrinth. What's the difference, you may ask?

A maze presents many choices of paths and direction, whereas a labyrinth has only a single, non-branching path leading to the center and is not designed to be difficult to navigate. It is also considered an ancient meditative tool that has been in existence for thousands of years.

UNE Students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors are invited to find a sense of balance and oneness by walking the path created with nature, art, creativity and peace.

Landscape Architect Ethan Stebbins built the labyrinth.  A celebration reception will be held on Thursday, March 8 at 4:30 p.m. at the UNE Art Gallery on the Portland Campus in appreciation to those who helped support its construction.
