The Wyoming Arts Council announces that a new call for entry for public art at Sheridan College is now open.
Sheridan College in north-central Wyoming is currently building a new Technical Education Center. Through the State of Wyoming’s Art in Public Buildings program, the college is seeking artwork for both the interior and the exterior of the building. A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is open to artists with a deadline of July 13, 2018.
This is a regional RFQ open to artists from North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, and Idaho. Wyoming artists will be given preference.
The call is available on CaFE – callforentry.org. Additional details, including eligibility requirements, timelines, and budget information are available on CaFE and on the Wyoming Arts Council website – wyomingartscouncil.org. Submissions to the RFQ must be made through CaFE by the deadline listed. There is a committee for the project, tasked with reviewing applications, selecting finalists, and making the final artwork selection. Wyoming artists are encouraged to apply.
Scheduled to open in August of 2018, the Technical Education Center houses four programs: Machine Tool, Construction Technology, Welding, and Diesel Mechanics. The floorplan of the building is laid out in four corresponding sections. The new facility will have the capacity to serve up to four times the current number of students. The building is located at the south end of campus, with the Student Center located to the north. The northern entrance to the building is the most visible and the most connected to the rest of campus.
The selection committee is interested in themes and subject matter that reflect the programs housed in the building, and the overall industrial approach to the architecture and design finishes.
Art in Public Buildings legislation for the State of Wyoming is administered through the Wyoming Arts Council
