Advisory Committee on Campus Art

Campus Public Art can enrich the cultural life of UCR students, faculty, staff, and the general public. It also enhances the role of the campus in teaching, conducting research, and engaging in public service. The University is a national leader in higher education and campus art should reflect this high standard. As such UCR welcomes and encourages proposals for public art that will enhance the campus setting and complement its buildings, grounds, and natural features. The University seeks to exhibit fine art in a variety of media and styles, including: three-dimensional works of art, sculptural forms, bas-reliefs, sculptural adornment of buildings or structures, two-dimensional art, and landscaping. Through these forms of art, UCR strives to memorialize important aspects of University tradition and campus culture, while also creating enjoyment for the campus community and the general public.

The Advisory Committee on Campus Art (ACCA) is charged with defining a vision and priorities for Public Art at the University of California, Riverside. It is concerned with the solicitation, acquisition, and placement of public art. The committee includes faculty, staff, and students.
