Watch this video documentary from Chuck Mintz to learn more about artist John Clague. Mr. Clague designed and constructed the Auriculum sculpturea "composite of auriculum and pendulum" known for "its sound and motion features" (John Clague, 1977). The Auriculum is centrally located on Ashland University's campus in front of Ashland University Library.

AU Library's web site features information and facts about the Auriculum, including reference from the Ashland College Collegian and Ashland University Archives. Special thanks to Ashland University's Facebook page for sharing this documentary video.
