Art in State Buildings
"Art in State Buildings" is a State of Florida requirement for each academic building paid for with Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO) funds. The requirement is to spend up to 0.5% of the construction cost for each building on public art. Each building’s art is determined by a unique committee and generally includes the President's representative, the architect for the building, a representative of the building faculty, and two other members of the art community in the Fort Myers area. A typical ASB committee first considers the type of project desired (exterior sculpture, interior sculpture, interior paintings, etc.). The committee then reviews proposals received from various artists interested in working on an ASB project with FGCU, who have responded to an advertised “Call to Artists.” Eventually, the committee selects which artist they want to work with for a particular project. The art work might be something already created by the selected artist, or a piece specifically designed for the project.
