Call for ILLINOIS Artists: University of Illinois Springfield
The artwork will be located in the heart of the campus. The area outside the northwest entrance to the Library Commons currently is known as the “Gradient Garden.”
The Committee is seeking a conceptually-challenging, site-specific installation that flows out of the Library Commons toward the Quad and the rest of the campus. It should accent the directional feeling of the “Gradient Garden” and not compete with the vista to the Colonnade.
The artwork will welcome the students of UIS and will set the tone of an inclusive and dynamic atmosphere in which they can work and collaborate. It will set the mood and tone for the Library Commons and serve as a welcome for students, faculty, visitors, and staff.
The piece must be durable, safe, and cost effective to maintain with limited annual maintenance.
