Request for Proposals: Art at Worcester State

Sheehan Hall, a new dormitory currently under construction at WSU, has been allotted spaces (and money) for the installation of new art. Preference will be given to Worcester artists (teaming with one is permitted). The Worcester State University Art Committee, charged with the selection of the proposals, is calling for works that are either large-scale and permanently incorporated into the building's design, or for smaller works that are demountable and independent of the wall surface.

The full call for proposals, with all details and requirements, can be found here.

Each artist selected will enter into a contract with the Massachusetts State College Building Association, and shall be paid a commission of up to $5,000 if selected to produce and install their piece.

For more information, contact:  architect Lisa Ferreira
Q&A period ends December 12, 2013
Submit by Monday, January 6th, 2014

Good luck!
