Each student will write a proposal for an installation in the Portland Building. This is an opportunity to understand how to get public funding for a project, and to explore site-specific installation
"The Installation Art Series features interactive and experimental media installations in a small space in the Portland Building’s lobby. Each installation is a month long and is selected through a juried process. The program presents challenging and diverse works that encourage the general public to re-examine its expectations and definitions of art through dialogue about the role of art in public spaces. With a modest honorarium, artists can share their work with a broad audience. If the accompanying "comment book" is any indication, the series is effective in achieving its aims to stimulate thought and provoke exchanges."
