Altered Church Bells are Temporary Art Installation

Have no fear, panicked all-stuers and Facebookers: the weird-sounding church bells that freaked a lot of you out last night are not some sort of bizarre digital upgrade. According to Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds Greg Widener, the altered bells are “an audible art installation by a Kenyon student, Edek Sher [’13].”

The installation was approved by the newly formed Art Committee.  The installation will remain in place until Friday of this week. — Greg Widener

So rest easy, because soon enough the old-fashioned, mechanically-struck bells will return and restore (relative) serenity to our Village.
