Public Art

The college campus is a part of the fabric of our neighborhoods, towns, and cities. It is a physical and social place dedicated to many goals, including presenting intellectual programs and offering events and objects to inform, educate, and present new ideas to students, visitors, faculty and staff. Public art enhances the campus experience by presenting campus history and ideals that challenge our ideas about our campus, our culture, and our personal beliefs. In addition, public art offers opportunities for personal and public celebrations of places or moments.   

Public art contains a broad range of work, such as: 

  • diverse media and venues 
  • permanent, semi-permanent or temporary installations 
  • works created by students, faculty, or professional artists. 

The Public Arts Committee promotes and oversees the presentation of art on campus and makes recommendations for integrating public art in future campus planning. The Committee also prepares requests for public arts proposals, reviews of donations, and plans for installations.
