The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and The New Jersey State Council On The Arts (NJSCA) requested artists from across the USA to submit qualifications. We received submissions from 172 artists in July, 2015. Our artist selection committee, including representatives from students, faculty, staff, the TCNJ Board of Trustees, the art gallery, campus planning, the architect of record, and the NJSCA shortlisted 10 artists to participate in the RFP process.
The winning artists have been selected (Kate Kaman & Joel Erland) and were approved at the February 2016 Board of Trustee meeting. The building is under renovation now. The artwork will be in place before the completion of renovation in Summer 2017.
