Two calls for entry are now open for the Student Services and University Center that is currently under construction at Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, according to the Wyoming Arts Council.
The Student Services and University Center will be the new focal point for student services on campus, and will house the bulk of student services, including admissions, disability services, the bookstore, science labs, a conference center accessible for use by the community, and a floor dedicated to the University of Wyoming for extension services. This building is scheduled to open in December.
The selection committee is accepting proposals for either 2D or 3D work for the interior of the building and a second call is for an exterior sculpture that is iconic and a focal point of the campus.
The calls are listed separately and are available on CaFE – callforentry.org. The deadline for applications is midnight June 3. These are national calls.
A call for artwork for the Student Services and University Center was originally announced in November. No finalists were selected. The selection committee decided to repost the call and is accepting new applications.
Visit www.callforentry.org for complete details, including eligibility requirements, timelines, and budget information. Artists’ submissions will be reviewed and final selections will be made by a committee appointed by the Wyoming Arts Council and Laramie County Community College.
The committee for this project includes members of the LCCC faculty and staff, administrators, and members from the various departments using the building, community members, artists, the architect, and Wyoming Arts Council board members.
Interested artists may view architectural renderings of the building’s exterior and interior, as well as floor plans, by visiting the Wyoming Arts Council website.
