Guiding Principles

Atelier InSite's mission is "To create a new paradigm for the implementation of site-specific public art that capitalizes on a cross-disciplinary and inclusive approach, that is predominately student driven".


"By students, for students..."


Guiding Principles For Site-Specific Public Artwork

  • All artwork implemented for campus projects will be reflective of, and not independent of, the qualities and attributes of affected programs and their internal programming.
  • All artwork implemented for campus projects will be located in a manner that thoroughly considers the aesthetic and spatial properties of the site in which it will be located.
  • All artwork will reflect aspects of the programmatic disciplines involved along with their related research areas. Artwork acknowledging a broad spectrum of interpretation; literally, abstractly and otherwise will be considered.
  • All artwork selected for campus projects will be intellectually engaging, demonstrating qualities and attributes that elicit questions and prompt discourse.
  • All artwork for the campus will be, in part, determined through a process of inclusivity so that individuals impacted by the placement of artwork are accounted for.
  • All artwork will take into consideration the public arena in which it operates and will in no manner have the potential to cause physical harm.
