In the fall of 2017, the Waunakee Area Public Arts Committee (WAPAC) fundraised for the purpose of commissioning an artist to design, fabricate, and install a sculpture to champion the theme of “celebrating teachers, staff, students, and excellence in education.”

The WAPAC wanted a public sculpture that would enhance a heavily trafficked public location and create an experience for all who gather there. The chosen site was the entrance to the high school because it hosts many community events and is where they could celebrate students of all ages.

CODAworx, the hub of the commissioned art economy, partnered with Interior Design magazine for the 6th annual international CODAawards. The CODAawards celebrate projects that demonstrate the most successful integration of commissioned art installations into interior, architectural, and public spaces. Winners were selected by a stellar jury – the who’s who of the art, design and museum worlds – who reviewed 425 submissions from 30 countries representing over $99M USD in commissions.

This year, CODAworx again partnered with The Architects Foundation of the American Institute of Architects to create this exhibition of winning projects. The exhibition opened May 1, 2019, and will be held at The Octagon Museum, 1799 New York Avenue, NW, Washington D.C. through September 1, 2019.
