On June 24, FBCU and Odessa Arts submitted a nationwide “Call for Artists” to design a significant art sculpture to enhance the outdoor plaza of the community room to be located at the new FBCU Corporate Headquarters office building.

The new building is being constructed in the Parks Legado Town Center and will face State Highway 191.

All artists have been asked to incorporate the theme of “wind” into the art sculpture, as wind is a direct reflection of West Texas. The piece has the potential of being created through a kinetic sculpture, stationary sculpture, a sculpture that is abstract or through other means, a news release said.

For more information, call Randy Ham, executive director of Odessa Arts, at 432-337-1492, or Crystale Galindo, with FBCU marketing, at 432-232-0547.
