Alanis, in collaboration with Nikki Burcea, received the President's Award for Public Sculpture in 2019 from SUNY Purchase College.
Together they constructed three pieces:
(1) the bench
(2) the cut-out wall
and (3) pole structure w/ wind elements
to be displayed on campus, inviting interaction, rest, and community from students and guests.
The pieces can be found by the campus Starbucks.
