SPTP (Special Topics): Art in Public Space gives students an opportunity to work through the various stages of realizing a public art project. This class exhibition highlights each student’s process in proposing a public work for the CBU campus. The materials presented here represent a breadth of interests, many highlighting the important relationship between CBU, its core values and student body.
The students in this exhibition believe CBU’s campus needs to be activated visually and architecturally through the arts. Not only would this highlight the Visual Arts Department and the important role that students play in campus culture, but could engage the broader Memphis community and create an inspiring atmosphere for students to live and learn.
