“Mining Minds” is an iconic piece of public art installed in 2010 to enhance the UTEP campus. At night, orange lights brighten the steel structure while light from LEDs emanate from the perforated “ones” and “zeroes” at each end of the pick. The 山ּ illuminates the pick in blue and orange on special occasions such as historic dates, major annual milestones and celebrations of special accomplishments.
