Kent State University Integrated Sciences Building Commission Call for Artists Application Deadline

Friday, March 30, 2018
Kent State University (KSU) is inviting Ohio and national artists to submit up to nine (9) digital images of past work for the KSU - Integrated Sciences Building Percent for Art Project commission.

Kent State University (KSU) is inviting Ohio and national artists to submit up to nine (9) digital images of past work for the KSU - Integrated Sciences Building Percent for Art Project commission. From the submissions a group of semi-finalists will be selected to visit the campus, meet with the committee (comprised of KSU faculty and staff), and visit the artwork site location to create a site-specific art work proposal. 

The artwork will be located outside of the building on a site adjacent with the University's Esplanade. The location will have strong pedestrian interaction and will establish a visual and physical connection to the building. It is anticipated that the commissioned work will be science-themed, preferably reflective of the sciences located in the Integrated Sciences Building, and responsive to the building's architectural design concept of ''Science on Display'.'

KSU employees and their spouses are not eligible to apply for this commission. Students enrolled in any degree-granting program are not eligible to apply.
