Brief Description

The committee is seeking interior artwork for the vestibule and/or lobby of the College of Engineering’s Engineering Innovation Building, currently under construction at 945 W. Taylor Street, Chicago, IL. The committee is interested in artworks aimed at complementing the learning and research experience in the new building. Artworks are expected to add to the dynamic atmosphere in a structure dedicated to scientific exploration and educating future generations of engineers. The first priority for the funds is an interior, hanging artwork for the vestibule or lobby that responds to the open, light-filled space and offers a thoughtful aesthetic complement to the ambitious experimental work with materials going on among the scientists and students in the building.
