The Urbana Sculpture Project

The Urbana Sculpture Project installs sculpture throughout Urbana on two-year temporary lease. In administering this program as Public Arts Coordinator for the City, I coordinated between the Public Art League of Champaign-Urbana and the City of Urbana Public Works department to identify possible sites, coordinate installation, and troubleshoot maintenance and safety issues. In addition, I conducted the RFQ process to publiczed the opportunity and identify artists, presented final selections (selected by a community panel) to the Urbana Public Arts Commission and Urbana City Council for approval, and coordinated with artists on installation dates, contracts, and maintenance.
