Vote for Your Favorite S.P.A.C.E. Sculpture

Each year, Plains Art Museum collaborates with one of three campuses in Fargo-Moorhead to produce a work of art for the outdoor sculpture pad adjoining the building. The project, code named S.P.A.C.E. (Sculpture Pad Art Collaborative Experiment), takes proposals from students, features mock ups of the pieces in our atrium, and asks for the public’s vote in deciding which proposal will be finished and placed on the sculpture pad where it will remain through the summer.

This year’s participants are students at Minnesota State University Moorhead and are under the guidance of professor Chris Walla. Their proposals are currently on display and will be up until March 14. Take a look at all five proposals and vote in one of two ways: you can note your favorite in the comments or you can stop by and vote the old-fashioned analog way with a slip of paper.
