Rutgers University – Newark and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts are pleased to present the Life Sciences Center II commission. This exciting opportunity is accepting proposals from adult visual artists who live or maintain a permanent art studio in Newark, NJ; who are current residents of the State of New Jersey, and have experience with contracted projects of a similar budget and scope. Preference will be given to artists with a strong connection to Newark. Qualified artists are encouraged to submit their work samples, resume, letter of interest and references for a public art project in the West entry exterior plaza egress stair cast-in-place concrete wall of the Life Sciences Center II addition. The selected artist will be provided a budget of $13,500 for the project to include all costs.

The Art Selection committee envisions a mural or other surface enhancement that draws upon thematic material related to the respective Sciences housed in the facility. The materials used must be durable, low maintenance, resistant to vandalism and coordinate well with the material palette of the building and the exterior plaza.
