The Tufts University Public Art Committee is chaired by the Tufts University Art Galleries and develops and implements formal public art policies and guidelines for the entire university. The Committee provides oversight for the care and maintenance of existing public artworks, including organizing and executing annual waxing of outdoor bronze sculptures and plaques.
On an as-needed basis, the University Public Art Committee convenes special selection committees for new artwork commissions to ensure community involvement from all affiliated constituents. The Committee is dedicated to developing an active, dynamic, and transparent public art program across Tufts’ four campuses that reflects the diversity of Tufts’ communities.
