Public Art Invitational for Artists/Design Teams

We're excited to share a new art and design opportunity with Augsburg alumni, staff, and faculty. A team comprised of faculty, alumni, staff, and art consultants are working to bring beauty and inspiration into the Hagfors Center for Science, Business, and Religion, and you're invited to participate.

Augsburg has engaged Forecast Public Art to facilitate the commissioning of art works for the new Hagfors Center for Science, Business, and Religion. You are invited to submit qualifications to be considered for this opportunity.

Read the Art & Identity Request for Qualifications (RFQ) here: The deadline for RFQ submission is July 19, 2016; all required materials must be received by 4 p.m. CDT. The Augsburg Art and Identity Committee will review applications and select up to 20 finalists to participate in a concept development phase.

The Art and Identity Initiative's charge is to bring expression to the guiding principles for the new Center and Augsburg's aspirations for a 21st century urban campus. Through art and identity, the Center's key interior elements and exterior spaces will illustrate a sense of beauty, harmony with place and a commitment to hospitality. As a way to express the transformative impact of the Hagfors Center for Science, Business, and Religion, Augsburg will commission numerous works of art. Each piece will be commissioned through philanthropic sponsorship and displayed in various locations within this new signature academic building.

We look forward to seeing your work!
