Brief Description

The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create site-specific exterior sculpture(s) to be placed outside the Museum of Texas Tech University, located on the Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock, TX. This piece should be outdoors and available to the community, as well as integrated into the environment. Water features are highly discouraged, but the selected artist will have an opportunity to collaborate with landscape architects for the project. The West Texas environment is characterized by the vastness of its open spaces and the near-perpetual nature of the winds. The art should be activated by the wind, either through movement or sound. The piece should also have a connection with sustainability and with the landscaping, which will be designed as an ecogarden (you can find an example here: https://deepnaturegardens.com/2011/07/30/what-is-an-ecogarden/).
