Student Work Selected for Moscow Intermodal Transit Center Sculpture Garden
The University of Idaho College of Art and Architecture recently installed five pieces of public art in Moscow’s Intermodal Transit Center Sculpture Garden. Fourteen sculptures, created by intermediate and advanced sculpture students in the college, were placed on display for community feedback along Paradise Path, in front of the Art and Architecture East building between Sixth Street and College Street.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our students to display work publicly while learning about the technical aspects of public art fabrication and installation logistics,” said J. Casey Doyle, assistant professor of sculpture.
Public feedback was gathered via an online survey, narrowing the pool to eight finalists. President Chuck Staben and his wife, Dr. Mary Beth Staben, selected the final five sculptures for installation.
“The College of Art and Architecture values the opportunity for our students to contribute to the public art landscape here in Moscow,” said Mark Hoversten, dean of the College of Art and Architecture. “This particular location allows us to infuse a sense of fun and creativity in a shared space such as the Intermodal Transit Center while contributing to our walking and biking experience as a community. ”
