North Carolina State University is seeking proposals from artists/teams to create an “iconic place” on the campus

Budget: $350,000 North Carolina State University is seeking proposals from artists/teams to create an “iconic place” on the campus. The site for this installation is a campus landscape that will be developed in coordination with the chosen proposal. Iconic places are living souvenirs that are powerfully evocative and stimulate feelings, images and experiences that are unique, providing almost immediate recall of the campus and its ambience. Iconic places frequently create an attractive space for photographs of family and friends, for celebrations of matriculation and graduation. These places are usually featured on cards, medallions, cups, mugs and t-shirts and like traditional souvenirs that can be saved as well as experienced in memory. The university’s mascot, the wolf, is the single essential element of this “iconic place.” The successful proposal will present one or more wolves (as many as 5) as they might exist in the wild, in the imagination, in the developed campus landscape. These icons may be as large as 1-1/2 to 2 times life-size. The wolves may be conceptual, naturalistic or abstracted forms; realism is not a required characteristic. The wolves may suggest movement, rest, companionship, youth, maturity and old age as well as other appropriate characteristics. The installation may involve more than one medium but water cannot be included in the design. The installation (objects) must be anchored to prevent removal and the materials should be durable, lasting and vandal resistant. The installation must be universally accessible, and allow for interaction and physical contact by people who visit the site.
