Lubbock, Texas - Texas Tech Public Art Programme

The Public Art Program at the Texas Tech University System was initiated by the Board of Regents in 1998 to enrich the campus environments and extend the educational mission at all of its universities. Through the program, public artworks are funded using one percent of the estimated total cost of each new major capital project. Since then, over 150 items created by some of today’s leading artists have been added to the TTU System’s multiple campuses.
The Public Art collection ranges from antiquities to modern and contemporary art, with over 150 artworks by American and International artists. The collection is thoughtfully curated by a panel of faculty, staff, community members, and artists.
Most pieces are original commissions selected to be conceptual functions of the building in which it is selected for installation. The collection is firmly rooted in culture of all campuses in the Texas Tech University System and new important works are added each year, both through original commissions and donations. The Texas Tech University System Public Art Program operates out of the Texas Tech University System Facilities Planning & Construction.
There are 153 pieces of art by 144 artists - across 8 Campuses and Academic Locations in the Texas Tech University System
