The Art Committee desires original works of art to complement the renovation of the Business and Nursing Building as part of Minnesota’s Percent for Art in Public Places. The refreshed building houses all the business and nursing courses and includes modernized and flexible classrooms, simulation labs, faculty offices, a student common space, and an outdoor terrace.
While the Art Committee is open to the artists selecting the best locations for their work, the following public locations have been identified for two opportunities:
Opportunity 1: Exterior Public Artwork; $65,000 budget; commission awarded to one artist or artist-led team
Opportunity 2: Interior Wall Pieces; $20,000 budget; commission awarded to one or more artists or artist-led teams
The Art Committee desires works from artists that will:
- Encompass themes such as water, healing, reflection/perception, community, commonality, connection, celebrate learning, welcoming, partnerships
- Create an inspiring beacon for the community of Anoka-Ramsey
- Offer an example of artistic excellence to our community members
- Offer solace for students
