Announcing the Second Biennial Radcliffe Institute Public Art Competition

The biennial competition to design and construct a site-specific installation for prominent display in Radcliffe Yard is open to all Harvard students currently enrolled in a degree program.

The Radcliffe Institute Public Art Competition invites a registration of intent by December 13, 2013, followed by a proposal submitted by January 31, 2014.

Designs can be submitted individually or in teams. We seek designs that highlight the potential of public art, and the visual arts in general, to contribute to intellectual conversations at Harvard and beyond.  Design submissions will be judged by a jury of Harvard faculty, who encourage bold, provocative designs. Winning entries receive a $40,000 construction budget and the winning student or team of students will receive a $10,000 honorarium.

To learn more, view the public art page of the Radcliffe Institute website and/or download the competition brief.

Register your intent to participate by Friday, December 13, 2013.

Deadline for entries: January 31, 2014.

Questions: or call (617) 495-8185.
