Adult Admission: Free

Synopsis: Public art at Texas Tech takes many forms: massive granite arches, giant photomurals, delicate iron work and whimsical cartoon-like sculptures. The University Public Art Committee has focused on building an impressive collection of works from some of the biggest names in the art world, said Mike Ellicott, vice chancellor for Facilities Planning and Construction. The pieces represent a variety of styles, media and images. Despite the quality of the works and the fame of the artists, Ellicott knows that not everyone will like every piece of art chosen for the collection.
