Two RFQs for Public Art Commissions

Bowling Green State University — Technology Building
Percent for Art Commission 

Bowling Green State University (BGSU) is inviting Ohio and national artists to submit up to nine (9) digital images of past work for the BGSU – Technology Building Percent for Art Project commission.  The College of Technology, Architecture, and Applied Engineering supports diverse students and faculty through an encouraging learning environment, experiential opportunities, and a culture of applied research and professional service. The artwork for the new BGSU Technology building should act as a gateway or ”front door” for this part of campus. The committee is looking to commission an outdoor art work that could act as a gathering place.

Kent State University — Design Innovation Hub
Percent for Art Commission 

Kent State University (KSU) invites Ohio and national artists to submit up to nine (9) digital images of past work for the Design Innovation Hub Percent for Art project commission. The project will complete a major renovation of the old art building originally designed by Australian architect John Andrews in 1971. Called the ”Design Innovation Hub” (DI HUB), the $44.9 million project will completely transform the entire building into a vibrant center of activity for design thinking and include a 350-seat dining facility to bring additional vibrancy to the building.  The artwork will be located outside of the building on a site adjacent to the university’s Lester A. Lefton Esplanade. The location will have strong pedestrian interaction and will establish a visual and physical connection to the building and Design Innovation as a concept.

Deadline: May 17th. For more information and to apply, click here.
