Brief Description

The building is along the 42nd street, one of the main thorough-fares of the campus. The artwork location is outdoors, under a substantial, two-story overhang. The intent for the space is a gathering or study space for students, etc. The renovated building includes an inviting outdoor sitting plaza for students, faculty, or visitors. The images below highlight the preferred site location for an exterior sculpture or wall sculpture. Other sculptures on this part of the campus are playful, engaging, and relatable, like the nearby public artworks seen on the previous page. The committee would like to see that vision continued. The artwork should be inviting for people to sit nearby and feel welcome, and should offer an iconic and identifiable place for people to meet.
