Experimental Sciences Building II Public Art, Texas Tech University
Texas Tech University campus
$754,000+ Texas
United States

The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create site-specific exterior sculpture(s) to be placed outside the new Experimental Sciences Building II, located at the Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock, TX. Construction of the new facility will be completed by January 2019. The Experimental Sciences Building II will be a multidisciplinary research facility designed to serve teams of faculty researchers and their students from such diverse disciplines as chemistry, physics, and engineering. The new building will allow scientists from different disciplines to work together to solve problems. Safety is imperative; durable, low-maintenance materials are recommended to withstand West Texas’ intense weather conditions. The northeast area of the building is a designated green space and public art will serve to enhance the exterior of the building from multiple points of view. The green space should encourage gathering, communication, and occupation of exterior spaces by students, and public art at this location has an opportunity to contribute significantly to these goals. Ideal submissions should incorporate multiple elements in the space. This piece should be outdoors and available to the community. Water features are highly discouraged, but the selected artist will have an opportunity to collaborate with landscape architects for the project. Among relevant concepts to consider are collaboration, inquiry, rigor, structure, curiosity, and science themes that are not too specific to one field. This will be a multi-disciplinary facility, so public art needs to have broad STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) appeal. Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided. Also, science stereotypes (such as lab coats, virus structures, etc.) should be avoided. Artists should attempt to create a design that speaks to the diversity of research that takes place in a facility such as the Experimental Science Building II. Public art near this location include “Square Spiral Arch” by Jesús Moroles and “Astrolabe” by Owen Morrel (see photos in additional resources at http://www.publicartist.org/call.cfm?id=1262). Please keep in mind both sculptures are associated with the first Experimental Sciences Building. In order to be considered, submissions must comply with the requirements outlined in the RFQ. Objects that are mass-produced or of standard manufacture are not eligible for consideration.
