The goal of the program is two-fold. First and foremost, enhance and expand the community’s exposure to the arts. Second, market the artists’ work with the understanding that each visiting piece on display is for sale and that a portion of the sale proceeds will further the operation of the program. Those sculptures, on loan from the artists, inhabit our campus for one year until a new set arrives each spring.
Public art, by its nature, is meant to be an integral component of the landscape. Each sculpture created by the artist should be looked at, enjoyed, studied and talked about. Public art is never passive and is meant to get your attention. In our selection of outstanding sculptures, you will see a variety of media and approaches to form created by a variety of artisans from around the US. Take your time as you visit our campus; each sculpture has a special story to tell if you are willing to listen.
