New Brunswick Public Sculpture will strive to acquire or commission sculpture of high quality for our city. The sculpture will encompass a wide range of styles of three-dimensional expression, ranging from traditional figurative work to contemporary abstract or conceptual modes. From whichever style, the sculptures will be chosen to best express the history, vitality, and diversity of New Brunswick. Thus the works will project the many meanings and visions with which sculpture can engage the viewer, whether through compelling narratives, flights of the imagination, or the purely visual pleasures of form, color, and material.
Selection of the art will be accomplished through a jurying process, whose participants will include local professionals in the fields of art, culture and history. Care will be taken in selecting work that is appropriate to the city in terms of subject and visual interest, as well as situating each sculpture for maximum public access and impact.
