PLACE STUDY: Arctic Shift: Art in the Public realm

In 2014, the United States Art in Embassies program entered into a partnership with Bennington College to design an outdoor, site-responsive sculpture for the new U.S. Embassy building in Oslo, Norway.

To realize the project, the college established a year-long curriculum titled “Art in the Public Realm.” After studying various models of public art, a team of faculty, staff, and students focused their research on Norway itself, investigating topics ranging from the arts, anthropology, and environmental sciences to economics, politics and current events.
