Public Art RFQ
Project Summary: The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create site-specific exterior sculpture(s)to be placed outside the Biology Building as a part of the Biological Sciences Buildings Life Safety upgrades. Retrofitting of the building will be completed by April 2014. Submitting artists should consider views from the upper floors of the building, which is how occupants of the building’s offices and classrooms will also experience it, in addition to what they see at ground level. Water features are highly discouraged, but the selected artist may have an opportunity to collaborate with landscape architects for the project. Among relevant concepts to consider are evolution, life science, the “study of life,” physiology, interactivity and educational components. Artists should keep in mind that this is a diverse department that intentionally emphasizes breadth. Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided.
Location: Lubbock, Texas
Budget: $77,000 (all inclusive)
Deadline: Monday, March 31, 2014, 3 p.m. (CDT)
