  • Brief Description

    Bayview Foundation and the Bayview Public Art Selection Committee invite artists and artist teams to submit
    public art qualifications for the design and installation of a series of sculptures (8-10). The series of sculptures
    will be designed as a seek-and-find experience, starting with a larger sculpture to be located within Bayview’s
    new playground structure (see above rendering). This initial sculpture - that doubles as a play/climbing piece -
    will lead participants throughout Bayview’s campus where they will find 8-10 smaller sculptures at various
    locations. Bayview’s new playground structure is an abstraction of a fallen Bur Oak tree, which is the dominant
    species of the Oak Savanna, Southwest Wisconsin’s native landscape. The sculptures created as a result of this
    commission are intended to be of animal species that live in and around the Bur Oak tree. The series aims to
    foster interaction and create a sense of wonder while providing education about the native landscape.
