Sculpture Commission


The board of the Friends of Art of Sweet Briar College is interested in commissioning a site-specific work of art to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Friends of Art and to mark the dedication of a new addition to, as well as the comprehensive renovation of, Sweet Briar College's Mary Helen Cochran Library in 2014. Statements of interest will be reviewed during the summer of 2013 and finalists selected by September 2013. It is anticipated that installation of the work will begin in June 2014.
