University City/Washington University Public Art Series

This partnership with Washington University has provided a breath of fresh air to the University City community each spring for 30 years.  Washington University sculpture students are encouraged by their professors to compete for the opportunity to design public art for temporary construction in University City.

Students develop proposals and models, make personal presentations to the Commission and submit a budget.  Selected students are responsible for constructing and removing their own work.

A digital archive of past projects can be viewed here.

Funding for the annual Public Art Series is made possible in part by the generosity of the Marvin Levy Family and the City of University City.
