Tiller is a sculptural installation created by Seattle Pacific University Professor of Art and Artist, Roger Feldman. Roger came to Wheaton's campus and worked with both Art and non Art Majors alike to complete the piece over the period of two weeks at the outset of the Fall 2011 semester. Tiller's original conception came in the form of a maquette created by the artist, as part of a series of highly crafted miniatures that were made for the Charis Exhibition (an international traveling exhibit of work by 7 Asian and 7 North American artists that explores the implications of Christian faith and effective artistic practice). Similar installations have also been created at Calvin College and Taylor University. Tiller has become part of Wheaton College's landscape and will remain for two to three years.
