The Mobile Project

To make a large scale “fun” mobile for the college that emphasizes STEM to STEAM through a collaboration between students and faculty from the Visual Arts and Advanced Manufacturing Technology departments. Note: If there is no interest from a second faculty member or students from the AMTEC department the project cannot go forward.

A large-scale “mobile” was initially considered for the second floor entry space above the staircase of Shuksan Hall. The Arts Committee may choose a different location that is open has plenty of light and is an interior space on campus. The mobile will be an original design based the work of Alexander Calder. 

A scale model will be approved by the Arts Committee from the artist’s collection. The chosen model will become the prototype for a full-sized mobile scaled for its location.
