Call for Student Health and Counseling Center Art

Sam Houston State University's Department of Facilities Planning and Construction invites artists to submit proposals for art for new the Student Health and Counseling Center.  SHSU, in consultation with the SHSU Art Committee and Lawrence Group Architects, has targeted the following potential art opportunities within the new building:

  • Exterior Guard Railing Panels
Along the north facade of the building, at the exterior covered patio, there is a 100' long guardrail system which has been designed to include a 14 gauge sheet metal infill panel, approximately 3'-0" high.
  • Exterior Sculpture at front entry "Zen Garden"
Along the east facade of the building, at the main entry, there are 2 small "Zen Gardens" that one must pass between entering the building. The southern and largest sized planting area has been targeted for a traditional sculptural piece that will be able to be viewed from both the exterior while entering the building as well as from the interior within the entry lobby waiting area.
The new building is being planned for the space once occupied by King Hall (and Bearkat Den, if you want to be nostalgic about it).
