Brief Description

The UNMC Wittson/Wigton Heritage Center Committee seeks a large 3D sculpture for the central circle of the Northwall Plaza. The Northwall Plaza is a beautifully manicured space located on the north side of Wittson Hall/Wigton Heritage Center. It serves as the outdoor threshold to the buildings and the campus welcome center. It is the ideal setting for conversations, fellowship and engagement by students and faculty. Flexible seating allows for casual or formal gatherings, as well as everyday use for informal meetings of faculty, staff, students and others.
The Northwall Plaza should provide a contemplative location for students to expand their learning and leadership. It is an inspirational space with natural elements including flowering dogwood and eastern redbud trees, regional perennials, and annual plantings within a raised planter surrounding the artwork.
