Country:

Eligibility:

Freer Hall was built in 1930.  A major north addition was added in 1968.  The recent Freer Hall renovation occurred in the north addition area (approximately 19,780 square feet) to provide state of the art research laboratories, faculty and graduate student offices, seminar rooms, and support spaces for the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health and College of Applied Health Sciences.  Included in this renovation project was the infill of the existing swimming pool and build out of new research, teaching, and office space within the existing swimming pool area.

The mission of the Department of Kinesiology and Community Health is to advance and disseminate knowledge related to health, rehabilitation, and human movement using an interdisciplinary approach.  Through the integration of high-quality research, instruction, and outreach programs, faculty scholars within the department are leading initiatives that address pressing concerns of our diverse society such as prevention and management of chronic disease as well as maintenance of health and well-being across the lifespan.  Our vision is to serve as a global leader in the discovery of dissemination of knowledge and evidence-based practices that can positively impact health in our diverse society.

The objective of the art is to advance what goes on within the department and make the space better for students who spend time in the facility.  While not required, the artwork could speak to one or more of the following ideas: Human movement, Health, Wellness, Strength, Rehabilitation, community health.  Artwork in the gym area should provide inspiration.  Colorful scenic imagery is encouraged.

Medium:

Paintings, Prints, tapestries, stained glass, metalwork etc.
