An art installation on campus

Rice Public Art presents and commissions public artworks, exhibitions, and programs that are accessible to all and which underscore the caliber and spirit of scholarly inquiry at Rice University. Permanent and site-specific works of art are sited throughout the university landscape in courtyards, stairwells, shared spaces, offices, libraries, lobbies, and among the university’s many expansive outdoor spaces. Rice Public Art offers innovative and meaningful experiences to local and global visitors and provides artists with unique opportunities to respond to the Rice campus and collection in a pioneering and collaborative academic setting.
