-A +A

The Sierra College Math Department and Facilities Division has approved commissioning art for the beautification of the Rocklin Campus Math and Technology Center.

This art is to take the form of a mural that incorporates math and art in a unifying theme. The project proposal can be viewed at www.sierracollege.edu/math-wall-project.php. Design submissions are now being accepted for review. This project is funded through the Math Foundation, with a budget not to exceed $3,000, including supplies and labor.

The location of the mural will be on the third floor of the Kevin Ramirez “V” building. Dimensions for the artwork are proposed to be no larger than 18 feet wide and 6 feet tall. The mural is projected to be completed and installed no later than June 1.

Interested artists are asked to submit proposals to Art Department chair, Professor Casey O’Connor, at coconnor@sierracollege.edu. The deadline for design proposals with corresponding write-up (see proposal) is Monday, Jan. 28. The Math and Art departments will work together to choose the final design.

“I think this could be a great opportunity for the right person or team to beautify the V Building with inspiring art that includes a theme related to mathematics,” said Math Professor Jill Rafael. “Thank you for your interest and I look forward to seeing your design.”

The Sierra College Rocklin Campus is at 5000 Rocklin Road, Rocklin. For more information regarding this project, contact Jill Rafael at jrafael@sierracollege.edu or Casey O’Connor at coconnor@sierracollege.edu.
