Call for ILLINOIS Artists: University of Illinois at Chicago
The Art-in-Architecture Program of the Capital Development Board is pleased to announce
a Request for Qualifications to Illinois professional artists to create permanent original public art for the Computer Design, Research, and Learning Center on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus in Chicago, Illinois.
The Computer Design, Research, and Learning Center (CDRLC) will be transformative and support Chicago’s flourishing technology sector.
The budget for the project is $463,000.00
The artwork for the project will be located in The Commons area near the primary entrance to the building on the east. It will be in front of the large brick wall within the new building.
This location allows for an expansive installation that will be visible throughout The Commons. There are opportunities for a 2D piece in front of the brick wall, or something that is voluminous and occupies a depth of space in front of that wall.
Given its prominent location and the opportunity to do something rather expansive, the artwork will invigorate the large community and collaboration space of The Commons. Its position at the main building entry will also set the mood and tone for The Commons and serve as a wayfinding aid for students, faculty, visitors, and staff.
The committee has no preferred theme, media or format and does not wish to be limited to content that relates explicitly to the function or program of the building.
