Sculpture on Campus
Fourth Installation

Pima Community College announces a special exhibition opportunity for three-dimensional artists.

This is the fourth installment of the College’s Sculpture-On-Campus exhibition program, based at East Campus, 8181 E. Irvington Road. This loaned sculpture program, which started in 2004, provides artists with an impressive institutional venue for the presentation of contemporary outdoor sculptural works of art. Each selected piece is displayed on the campus and is protected by insurance provided by the College. Through this program, artists are given the opportunity to exhibit their art to the general public in an educational setting as part of a partnership that turns the East Campus into an exciting extension of the artist’s studio. This designated venue for viewing and appreciating public sculpture also establishes a much-needed art resource for East Side residents.

The campus covers 58 acres of Sonoran Desert near Pantano and Irvington roads, adjacent to Fred Enke Golf Course, Atturbury-Lyman Bird & Animal Sanctuary, Lincoln Regional Park  and city of Tucson’s William Clements Recreational Center. The campus is lush with native Sonoran Desert vegetation, and maintains a relaxed, comfortable college atmosphere, with buildings clustered around several small patios and shaded courtyards. The campus enrolls more than 6,000 students each year. In addition to the newly renovated Library student center, the campus houses a health clinic that is used by both the general public and students.

Sculpture Placement

While the College already has identified many sites for sculpture placement – and poured cement pads in many highly visible areas, artists may propose other locations to install their work. For example, space along an extended walkway or paseo to the south of campus could be an excellent installation space. A variety of courtyards, open spaces and interior settings also may be suitable for specific works.
