Engineering Art Collection in theZachry Engineering Education Complex
Intersection of Art and Engineering
The Texas A&M University College of Engineering integrated an art program within the Zachry Engineering Education Complex. We implemented the art program to encourage creativity and innovation and promote cross-disciplinary initiatives in education and research.
The art program entails site-specific works of art created by visionary artists, who conceptually drew inspiration from science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The art program’s goal is to engage students, faculty and alumni by inspiring exploration, inventiveness and enterprise.
This collection celebrates the intersection of creativity and innovation through art and engineering. The College of Engineering commissioned site-specific, privately-funded works of art that reflect interdisciplinary fields of engineering. A university committee selected 10 visionary artists from more than 100 candidates to be included in the Zachry building art collection.
The collection promotes innovation and discovery of science and engineering by:
Encouraging excellence, innovation and cross-disciplinary initiatives in engineering education.
Providing national and international leadership in engineering education.
Encouraging and supporting opportunities for students to grow beyond their chosen disciplines.
