The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create two to four artistic benches to be placed around “Riding into the Sunset,” a sculpture of Will Rogers by Electra Waggoner Biggs. These benches should not only enhance the area surrounding this prominent sculpture on the TTU campus, they should also be functional. Safety is imperative; durable, low-maintenance materials are recommended to withstand West Texas’ intense weather conditions. This public art piece will be a part of the TTU Campus Beautification Project, which includes a landscape design that enhances the areas of the Broadway Entrance, Memorial Circle, and the Library Mall on the main Texas Tech University Campus. Over 400 new trees will be planted, along with other types of plantings and new lighting will be added.
Location: Lubbock, Texas
Budget: $22,000 (all inclusive)
Deadline: Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 3 p.m. (CDT)
