Art in State Buildings



Art in State Buildings - 2010

"Art in State Buildings" is a State of Florida requirement for each academic building paid for with Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO) funds.  The requirement is to spend up to 0.5% of the construction cost for each building on public art. Each building’s art is determined by a unique committee for that building and generally includes the President's  representative, the architect for the building, a representative of the building faculty, and two other members of the art community in the Fort Myers area.  A typical ASB committee reviews the type of project desired for a typical building (exterior sculpture, interior sculpture, interior paintings, etc.)  The committee then also reviews the proposals we have received from various artists when we request a “Call to Artists” to see who would be interested in working on a typical ASB project with FGCU.  Eventually, the committee selects which artist they want to work with for a particular project.  The art work might be something already created by the selected artist, or a piece specifically designed for the project.
