Public Art

Public art, by its nature, is an art that is placed in an accessible location and will therefore be shared by many. There is no better place for this than on the campus of a public institution of higher education. The Farmingdale State College Committee on Public Art promotes and oversees the integration of art in public spaces on campus, educates the College and surrounding community about the importance of art in public spaces, and encourages the consideration of public art in future campus planning. Works of this nature that appear on campus may be temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent, installed inside or outside, and maybe created by students, faculty, staff, or professional artists. All pieces of public art installed on the campus must be based on the academic, cultural, and aesthetic qualities of the College and meet the criteria and requirements set forth by the Committee on Public Art. The committee will make recommendations to the administration on petitions from the college community to install works of art, requests for public art proposals, donations of work to the college, and the inclusion of public artworks on campus.
