Campus Arts Initiative showcases project proposals in Borland Project Space

October 08, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — "Campus Arts Initiative: Eight Temporary Site-Specific Project Proposals," will be on display until Oct. 10 in Borland Project Space on Penn State's University Park campus. The Campus Arts Initiative, a pilot project funded through the University’s Strategic Planning Seed Grant program, is working toward eight site-specific pieces of visual artwork across all Penn State campuses.

The Campus Arts Initiative offers a University-wide, cross-disciplinary model for collaborative engagement with works of public art.

Viewers are invited to a coffee hour talk from 4-5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, with Campus Arts Initiative staff to learn more about current and future projects.

The Borland Project Space, located in 125 Borland Building, seeks to showcase the vivacious research culture of Penn State's College of Arts and Architecture. The space moves beyond traditional exhibitions, performances and scholarly programming to expose the processes and procedures of “arts research,” which viewers seldom see. Home to several residences and projects throughout the academic year, the space is open for visitors from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout the academic year.
