Brief Description

NC State University is seeking proposals from artists/teams to create a themed Wolfpack art installation for the newly completed Wellness and Recreation Center at Carmichael Gym, located in the Central Campus precinct.
NC State University is commissioning an art installation of the Wolfpack Wall, integrated into a large wall (metal stud and drywall) located on the South side of the building’s prominent four-story atrium and is conceptualized as having some 3-dimensionality (relief or sculptural). The atrium wall is visible from the exterior through a large glazed curtainwall system on the South of the building.
The concept of the art installation of the Wolfpack Wall is to illustrate the attributes of the pack, that live, feed, and travel as a family group. The art installation should represent the strength, confidence, pride, courage, spirit, and passion of NC State. As visitors circulate around the open atrium, we anticipate an emotional moment, a feeling of being part of the pack.
