Sculptures, paintings and other artwork displayed for the public on campus and in the community tell as much of a story about Chaffey College as the buildings and employees. These works of art are located in public spaces of the college, including exteriors of buildings, outdoor public areas and interior public lobbies. They can be permanent or temporary installations and are managed by the Chaffey College art committee.
The committee's mission is to enhance learning and environmental aesthetics through advancing the presence of public art on the Chaffey College campuses. The committee believes that public art contributes to the college's educational mission, enlivens and distinguishes the campus environment and is a source of pleasure and inspiration to students and the community.
The art committee's goals include: advancing the presence of public art of both professional and student artists; setting standards and criteria for public art purchased or commissioned by or donated or loaned to the college; overseeing the placement, relocation or removal of public art; reviewing long-term funding models for maintenance of public art; providing opportunities to facilitate community education and appreciation of public art; identifying and cultivating sources of funding for public art; and developing and overseeing campus policy and procedure on public art.
