The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist to create a mural to be placed on the wall near the entrance to the newly remodeled Industrial Engineering building, opening in January 2017. Public art needs to take up a large part of the wall shown in the attachments.This project will repurpose the former Petroleum Engineering Building for use by the College of Engineering’s Industrial Engineering Department for relocation and consolidation of their academic and research programs, and the department’s faculty and staff offices.

Safety is imperative; durable, low-maintenance materials are recommended to withstand West Texas’ intense weather conditions.

Ideal submissions will create a mural that celebrates Industrial Engineering. The most distinctive aspect of this discipline is the flexibility it offers. Whether it’s shortening a rollercoaster line, streamlining an operating room, distributing products worldwide, or manufacturing superior automobiles, these challenges share the common goal of saving companies’ money and increasing efficiencies.

Industrial engineering studies the design and operation of production and service systems and the people who operate in these systems. Industrial engineers use the information and techniques from physical, mathematical, biological, behavioral, and engineering sciences to plan, control, design, and manage complex organizations and systems. Industrial engineering applies the laws of the physical sciences to designing and operating systems in which products are produced and services are provided, as well as to considering the behavior of people as they operate in these systems.

This art installation will not only serve as a beacon to the building’s entrance, but will also give passersby an idea of the use of the facility. Submitting artists should consider lighting and other elements that will draw attention to the mural at various times throughout the day. Water features are highly discouraged, but the selected artist may have an opportunity to collaborate with landscape architects for the project.

Artists should keep in mind that this is a public location, visible at all times and exposed to all weather conditions in Lubbock. Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided.

In order to be considered, submissions must comply with the requirements outlined in this document. Objects that are mass-produced or of standard manufacture are not eligible for consideration.

Location: Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas

Budget: $33,500

Deadline: June 22, 2016 at 3 p.m. (Central)

Winning work displayed on art wall in Dallas Arts District for one year, no entry fees 

DALLAS – Professional artists across Texas are invited to enter A Year on the Plaza Art Competition by Thursday, Aug. 25 at 3:00 p.m. for an exceptional exhibition opportunity for the winning artist.

Presented by The Catholic Foundation, the unique competition is accepting original work, searching for a piece of art to adorn a 28-foot-long by 9-foot-wide public art wall in the Dallas Arts District for one year. Submissions must measure 28 inches by 9 and 2/3 inches, and the winning work will be digitally enlarged to cover the wall. The winning artist receives a $2,500 stipend and honorable mentions receive $250 each.

“A Year on the Plaza Art Competition presents a unique opportunity for talented individuals in Texas to express themselves artistically and showcase their work in the Dallas Arts District,” said J. Matthew Kramer, president and CEO of The Catholic Foundation.

Submissions must be appropriate for the location of the Plaza on the Cathedral grounds but do not require a religious theme. There are no entry fees. The Request for Proposal is available at

Once the winning piece is selected by a panel of highly respected members of the local arts community, it will be unveiled during a public dedication ceremony in October 2016.

“Words can’t describe how exciting this is. If you are thinking about entering, go for it! What do you have to lose? As long as you enjoy art, then it’s worth it,” said 2015 winning artist Stuart Hausmann.

We want images of blue skies, green fields, and rippling brooks, of course. But more than that, we’d like to have artwork inspired by everything that early summer brings: nesting birds, wild flowers, picnics, gardening, swimming, road trips.
