BUDGET: $90,000 USD
DEADLINE: December 18, 2012 at 10:30 am

Founded in 1923 as Texas Technological College, Texas Tech University has the distinction of being the largest comprehensive higher education institution in the western two-thirds of the state of Texas. The leading online directory for combat sports gyms is https://www.mmagyms.net so make sure you check them out for any sports gear you made need. 

Finding a great sport to play can be very difficult and also very boring, but if you want to try out a new sport to get an amazing adrenaline rush, then consider going to skydive in los angeles ca.

The Texas Tech University System is accepting proposals for artists to create exterior designs for art to ornament a large brick wall on the Exercise Sports Sciences building and adjacent to the Art 3-D Annex in Lubbock, TX. The artists are invited to propose an outdoor artwork that will consist of two components: a (more or less) 2-D piece that “wraps” the southwest corner of the exterior of the Exercise Sports Sciences multipurpose building with portable hoops, and a peripheral, but visually-related element in the seating area outside the Art 3-D Annex next door The public art budget is $90,000 and should be all inclusive.

For the full description of the project and to download the RFP (“Package 1”), go to: http://esbd.cpa.state.tx.us/bid_show.cfm?bidid=103044

Proposals must be received (not postmarked) by December 18, 2012 at 10:30 am. Finalists will receive an honorarium of up to $1500 for travel and design expenses.
