UNCG seeks to commission a permanent public artwork to celebrate and pay tribute to the thirty-year period when the university was the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina. The tribute should resonate with the feelings of innovation, revolution, and transition associated with Woman’s College as an integral piece of UNCG’s character, history and future.
The Woman’s College Tribute will be placed on part of the lawn in front of the Stone Building on College Avenue, a central location on campus and at the heart of what was Woman’s College. The only limitations on the project’s final design are that it not disturb the tree canopy and that it also respect the height and proportions of the buildings around it (Stone and Petty). Power and water can be made available to the final project. The total project budget, from the selection of the winning design, through installation is $150,000.
Initial entries will be accepted on the CaFÉ website from February 6 through March 23, 2018, and all entries must be completed by midnight MST on March 23. The finalists will be notified in April, with full proposals due June 15. The selected artist will be notified in August.
