The mission of Stevenson High School’s Public Art Committee is to beautify our school by incorporating professional works of art that reflects our school’s vision and values. Specifically, this includes the acquisition, placement and installation of public art. Examples of Stevenson’s student and professional public art can be found here.
In order to support this mission, the Committee has developed a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to commission and install public murals in two rotunda ceilings in the west campus building.
The Public Art Committee has been inspired by the aesthetics of mandala designs and non-representative circular patterns. This World History Encyclopedia article provides a detailed account of the history and common themes found in mandala artworks throughout time.
While Stevenson’s rotunda murals will be secular in nature, the goals of placing these artworks near our Visiting Artist and Student Art Galleries will be to further add to an environment that promotes reflection and awareness.

The deadline for submission is Sept. 14, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.
