Brief Description

The new UNK STEM building houses the following programs: construction management, industrial distribution, interior design, aviation, cyber systems, mathematics and statistics, physics, astronomy and engineering. There are two seperate projects for its central atrium, which houses collaborative classrooms and the main pathway through the building. The Selection Committee is inspired by the notion that the programs in this building are united by the hard work of research, trial and error, repetition that goes into every discovery, creation and invention, and expects that to be the central concept. Project 1, $200,000: large-scale sculptural piece in the two-story West Atrium. *Professional artists or artist teams throughout the US are eligible to apply. Project 2, $50,000: wall locations for 2D artworks for the walls on the first, second, and third floors. *Professional artists in NE, IA, MO, CO, WY, SD. https://www.artscouncil.nebraska.gov/opportunities/for-artists/1-for-art.html
