Brief Description

The State recognizes this project as a valuable opportunity to commission artwork for the Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf. The artwork for this project will be located in area(s) of the facility that will be freely accessible, on a regular basis, to members of the public. The goal of this public art project is to select a contractor to provide artwork that: – Provokes thought and encourages dialogue on the diversity of peoples and practices at the school; – Is compatible with the needs of students who call this dormitory home, yet discernible as a work of art; – Helps visitors of the Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf embrace the school’s family atmosphere; – Contributes to the local, regional, and national dialogue on contemporary art; and – Enriches and diversifies the State of Minnesota’s public art collection.
