The Hamilton Hall Public Art Initiative brings art to the Avenue of the Arts, engendering public engagement with exceptional and thought provoking works by Uarts’ students, alumni, faculty and regional artists. HHPAI functions as a form of outreach and an educational opportunity for the University community and the public at large. Students gain real-world experience meeting artists and witnessing the design and installation of public works.
