In Sight / On Site: The Fredonia Sculpture Project
The In Sight / On Site Sculpture Project, initiated by the Department of Visual Arts and New Media and the Office of the President in 1998, exists to expose our campus and community to developments and directions within contemporary sculpture, and to foster an appreciation for art as an integrated concern within public space. Selection of works to be included in this revolving exhibition is competitive, and work is solicited for consideration through national and regional initiatives. Most of the sculptures selected for installation are placed on site for two or three year visits.
Fredonia’s 266 acre campus is striking in its beauty and design. A traditional brick perimeter encloses a modern sculptured core of buildings, including designs by the internationally respected architect I.M. Pei. We have selected our installation sites for high exposure within this context.
Support is provided by the Student Association through ARTFORUM, the Department of Visual Arts and New Media, Friends of Rockefeller Arts Center, and the College Administration.
