Frank Swanson did a public art piece for us at Texas Tech that was dual purpose – showing an engineering principle, but also honoring the Maddox Foundation that funded the project. The three pieces are cut from one block of granite with the two end pieces representing the brothers that created the Foundation and the center representing the Foundation itself.

Subject: non-traditional historic/commemorative public art


We’d love to see examples of non-traditional sculptures or public art concepts that commemorate people or foundational stories for a city/community. (we’d like to initiate a project that does not end up as a traditional bronze sculpture). We’d also welcome examples of RFPs that generated creative submissions for this kind of project.


Thanks so much in advance!
