  • Brief Description

    The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create site-specific exterior sculpture(s) or installation to be placed at Bolin Hall, on the Midwestern State University campus, located in Wichita Falls, TX. The artist has the option to present a concept for either an interior or exterior piece. Construction of the facility will be completed by July 2025.

    Among relevant concepts to consider are metamorphosis, catalyst, collaboration, inquiry, rigor, structure, curiosity, active learning, and transformative. This will be a multi-disciplinary facility, so public art needs to have broad appeal. Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided. Artists should attempt to create a design that speaks to the diversity of learning that takes place in a facility such as Bolin Hall.
