Call For Artists: Interactive Installation
October 20, 2022
The Louisiana Percent for Art Program is seeking artists or artist teams to design and implement three thematically related exterior, site-specific sculptures, or installations of original design for the Music & Dramatic Arts Building, Tiger Band Hall, and Cypress Residential Hall at Louisiana State University.
The artwork should actively engage students, faculty, and visitors in creative interactive experiences that emphasize the meaning and value of music. This commission is open nationally to professional artists ages 18 and over.
One artist or artist team will be chosen to execute all three projects.
Application materials must be received by January 14, 2023 via the Call for Entry (CaFÉ) system available online. Deadlines in CaFÉ are at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time Zone [Denver, Colorado, USA] on the day of the deadline.
The Percent for Art law, enacted in 1999, stipulates that whenever more than $2 million in state funds is to be spent by a state agency for the construction or renovation of a state building, 1% of the state money "shall be expended for the project to acquire, conserve, or restore and install works of art for display in, on, or on the grounds of the state building."
The Louisiana Percent for Art program provides the citizens of Louisiana with an improved public environment, adds visibility to the cultural heritage of the state and its people, attracts visitors to the state and creates economic opportunities and training for public art artists and related industries.
