Texas State University invites professional artists, or artist teams, to submit qualifications to design and fabricate sculpture or sculptures for an exterior and/or interior public space on its campus in San Marcos, Texas. The site is a new residence hall complex, currently under construction on Moore Street.

The Moore Street residence hall complex serves undergraduate students at Texas State, nearly all of whom are freshmen. Their first experience of college life begins on this site, meeting new friends, and preparing for new and life-changing experiences, and meeting the challenge presented by new fields of knowledge and learning. At the west end of campus, the new building’s main entrance will face east toward the unique grounds of Texas State University, built into the hills above San Marcos, characterized by expansive use of brick, stone, and dozens of buildings joined together by stairways, ramps, and terraces. The campus also includes the headwaters of a stunningly clear and cold-spring fed San Marcos River. The area’s visually striking geology and ecology are unique to this part of Texas.


This public art commission is open to all professional artists or artist-led teams with experience in similar such projects.

As this is a Request for Qualifications, not a Request for Proposals, we are providing only an introductory look at the site with the rendering provided at this link: The Texas State University Public Art Committee will provide complete plans to the artists that are invited to submit proposals, as described in Section 6 of the RFQ.
