Brief Description

The Art-in-Architecture Program of the Capital Development Board is pleased to announce a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to Illinois professional artists to create permanent original public art in the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park at Governors State University in University Park, Illinois. Final Deadline: Friday, March 27, 2020 4:30 P.M. APPLICATION BEFORE THE FINAL DEADLINE IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. The Committee is interested in a sculpture, installation, and/or earthwork in the area that allows for interaction with visitors, hikers, bird watchers, and students. The piece should incorporate a shelter or seating element or allow for seating to be installed nearby without infringing upon the integrity of the artwork. The artist's work must fit in with the site and the Nate collection; it must be both distinct from, and complementary to, the other works in the collection. The Committee is eager to work with emerging artists; no previous public art experience required.
