Nebraska % for art opportunity

Applications and additional information are available on at the NAC website at www.nebraskaartscouncil.org <http://www.nebraskaartscouncil.org> .
The UNL Keim Hall Project: The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Nebraska Arts Council announce the latest 1% for Art project for the Keim Hall building, located on the UNL East Campus. The UNL Keim Hall Project committee is seeking artist RFQ applications for this Nebraska public art project.
Keim Hall has multiple functions including classrooms, labs, research facilities and offices for faculty and government. Classroom studies include agronomy, landscape design, plant and soil science and professional golf course management. Administrative and faculty offices for Agronomy; offices for The Center for Grassland Studies (Professional Golf Management and Grazing Livestock Systems programs) as well as the USDA and Nebraska Statewide Arboretum are also located in the building.
The potential placement of this artwork project includes several site opportunities for artistic treatment, both indoors and outdoors. Images of these areas are available for viewing on the Nebraska Arts Council website (see link to project information below). Areas include the front entrance, first and second floor common areas, student lounges and a courtyard, among other possibilities.
The selection committee is interested in commissioned work or direct purchase of artwork for the site. Interested artists may apply for either one or both of these options. Details on how to apply are included in the prospectus.
There is no specified theme for this project, however both the building construction (LEED-certified) and the academic programs to be held within the facility are concerned with green, sustainable concepts. The selection committee encourages artists to explore these ideas in the construction and theme of their work.
