Call for Artist Qualifications for 1% Project at Oregon Institute of Technology

Institute of Technology: Village for Sustainable Living

National and international artists are invited to submit qualifications

The Art Selection Committee for the Oregon Institute of Technology Village for Sustainable Living seeks artwork to enhance and animate the outdoor living spaces of this residence hall. Work defining and lending character to the three outside common areas of the apartment units may involve passive use of wind, solar or other sustainable technologies. Creating a sense of place and belonging for resident students while providing inspiration that emphasizes sustainable life styles, innovation and opportunities for learning is foremost.

Submissions must be received in person or by mail at the Arts Commission offices by 5PM, September 9, 2011.  The approximate art budget for this project is $115,000, which will include artist fees, and fabrication, insurance, shipping, travel, installation, documentation, and all other project costs. These funds may be divided between multiple art projects.  Please review the full project description..
