From September 13 to October 25, 2014, the University of Washington welcomed MadArt’s newest public art installation, Mad Campus, onto its grounds. In this exhibition, temporary, site-specific works were displayed in various outdoor locations on the UW campus. Inspired by their locations, from hidden nooks to well-frequented vistas, the selected artists created new sculptures designed to be interactive. During the initial period of the exhibition, students and visitors witnessed the sculptures as they were created and installed, giving them a window into the world of art making. Mad Campus continued MadArt’s tradition of bringing art to the public through innovative and surprising installations. Aside from providing artists with a unique opportunity to make new works, Mad Campus welcomed the public onto the University of Washington’s Seattle campus and engaged students through School of Art curricula and internships.
Thank you to all the artists, UW staff, students, volunteers, and visitors who made this exhibition possible.
