Brief Description

This art installation will not only serve as a highlight and focal point of the facility, but should also create a sense of place and reflect the community gathering nature of the space and the ideals of the UND residential student experience. Submitting artists should consider lighting and other elements that will draw attention to the artwork at various times throughout the day. Artists should keep in mind that this is a public location. Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided. Ideal submissions will create an original art piece that celebrates University of North Dakota residential student experience and which reflect institutional values of Community, Discovery, Diversity and Inclusion, Lifelong Learning and Liberal Arts. Other themes or characteristics that may provide the artist insight or inspiration for this project include: hardworking, self-reliant, proud, doer, resilient, bold, and friendly.
