Brief Description

This commissions is open to all professional artists, artisans, or artist-led teams that live and work in the state of Illinois.
The Committee is interested in a series of pieces to enliven the building.

The work does not need to be limited to wall spaces and can move beyond two dimensions to be mounted from the ceiling as well.
In keeping with the many ways the programs in Memorial Hall are of service to the campus and community, the artwork should vibrant, activate and enliven the spaces and evoke positive emotions such as joy, encouragement, warmth, and growth. The work can be separate pieces or an installation spread throughout the building.
The University is eager to collaborate with artists in creating their vision. The piece(s) must be durable, safe, and be able to withstand display in public spaces with
