Atelier InSite, which is responsible for the administration of site-specific public art on the Clemson University campus, is pleased to announce a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a major public art work for the newly built Business School. The artwork that is ultimately selected for the project must be reflective of the site, taking into account the precinct’s overall spatial and aesthetic properties, and encourage interactivity and/or functionality. In addition to these principles, artwork deemed unsafe and/or fragile would not be eligible for consideration.
Eligibility: (none specified)
Deadline: 02/12/2019 11:59 PM Central Time
Artwork implemented for the project will explore aspects of the human condition specific to the “global marketplace of ideas” for individual and social development. The selected work should embody characteristics of outreach and the spirit of education in business communication; literally, abstractly and otherwise considered. The proposal must take into account the use of the site, including the broad scope of individuals that experience the College of Business. The installed artwork must not in any way interfere with daily operations.
The new Business School interior is an approximately 170,000 square foot facility along with a 600,000 to 700,000 square foot area, which will nearly double the space for business education at Clemson University. The facility includes offices, group meeting rooms, study areas, lounges, an atrium, auditoriums, and classrooms. The new facility will be constructed in a high traffic area near Bowman Field, Sikes Hall, Douthit Hills, and downtown Clemson. This new facility will bring most business activity into close proximity and allow for more efficient daily operations.
The breadth of the project area includes adjacencies to the heavy traffic road SC-93 N, one main drive leading into campus, and historic Bowman Field. The artwork can be interior, exterior, or a mixture of both within Clemson University’s College of Business area.

Atelier InSite and its constituency are composed of art/design professionals, community stakeholders, and students. This group reviews submissions and selects the artist(s) that best meet the requirements based on the information submitted in the Artists’ materials. Several finalists will be selected and awarded an honorarium of $2,000 to submit a detailed proposal.
