Brief Description

The goal of this public art project is to welcome “clients” (their owners) to the new “front door”. The piece should speak to the healing work done within the facility. The sculpture will sit on the front lawn with 360 degree viewing. The University is interested in physically engaging people with the sculpture. A durable, long-lasting, extremely low maintenance sculpture is required. The piece should be seen and recognized from the road, interacted with close up, and stand out against the backdrop of the building. The university would be interested in the use of color in the piece. It should be lighted at night, however the piece should not depend on light as the primary design idea. The cost of foundation design and installation will be included in the design. The landscape and hardscape providing access to and around the piece will be required to be included in the design and construction cost. Lighting will be required as part of design and construction cost.
