Two Strangers Meet in a Parking Lot by Jared Macken

We have all been strangers at some point and experienced the fear of meeting new people. Two Strangers Meet in a Parking Lot provides a wonderful opportunity to meet unfamiliar people in a familiar place, the parking lot west of the Mulvane Art Museum at Washburn University. The two architectural structures are designed so two complete strangers will meet face to face. Visitors can enter the parking lot and encounter "The Strangers" by walking up nine steps, entering a small room at the top of stilts, and peering through a window that looks out to the adjacent structure. As strangers approach the windows they will come face-to-face with each other.
