[text=left]Creativity and innovation are nurtured and promoted through every aspect of campus life at the University of Rochester. With a mission to “Learn, Discover, Heal, Create – and make the World Ever Better,” academic experiences at the U of R are on a very personal scale. We want the sculpture to be in keeping the artist’s point of view while still connecting to the university’s mission.

University of Rochester, Rochester NY is requesting proposals for a site-specific permanent installation / sculpture for the north end of its River Campus. The selected work will be installed at the intersection of heavily trafficked walkways adjacent several residential halls and Sage Art Center. Artists’ responses may propose sculptural element(s), single/multiple pieces, and/or any other tangible and durable artistic interventions. We seek an artwork that is conscious of its surroundings and environment and their histories. Initial proposals are due August 19th. A maximum of $60,000 will be awarded.
