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 for Illini Hall on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus in Champaign, Illinois.

The new building will be constructed on the site of Illini Hall at the corner of South Wright and East John Streets. The building currently at the site is scheduled to be razed.

The new facility will be a sixstory,143,000-square-foot building to the west of Altgeld Hall.
