Texas Tech Spends Nearly $2 Million on Public Art Program for 2013

ttu.edu

Texas Tech has spent nearly $2 million on the university’s Public Art Program.

The Public Art Program was approved by the Texas Tech Board of Regents in 1998, and through the program, public artworks are funded using one percent of the estimated total cost of each new major capital project.

Several of this year’s projects accompany construction funded through support during Tech’s $1 billion campaign, “Vision and Tradition: The Campaign for Texas Tech.”

“This year marks the biggest year in our program’s history, and we are thrilled to work with such talented artists to enhance our beautiful and thriving campuses,” said Michael Molina, vice chancellor for Facilities Planning and Construction.

The first addition to the art collection this year is at the newly-updated Rip Griffin Park baseball facility. Fourteen banners depicting iconic moments in Red Raider baseball history are being installed along the concourse.

The planned artwork additions for 2013 total $1.9 million, and will be installed at Texas Tech and Angelo State University campuses.

Some of the places slated for new artwork installations include Angelo State University’s Center for Human Performance and Porter Henderson Library, and the College of Business Administration Renovation and the J.T. and Margaret Talkington Hall at Texas Tech University.
