The University of Nebraska Kearney (UNK) is the higher-education center for central and western Nebraska, a regional epicenter for education, culture, health care and economy. This is a unique urban locale in a rural setting: University Village adds a “sense of place” within Kearney, with striking green spaces, trails and walkways, education, retails, recreational venues, and public art.
The artwork site is at the heart of the 1.7 acre greenspace in the center of the new UNK University Village. The artwork will serve a focal point for a diverse community and as a backdrop to many activities. The committee envisions a significant, timeless and distinctive artwork that acts as a beacon to draw people in and invite them to stay and interact. The committee would like to consider artists who can design a large-scale structure vertically, and potentially work with light options.
