Public Art Program Day One

On June 29, 2015 the “Artystan” project, implemented by the American University of Central Asia in partnership with HMA2Architects and supported by The Christensen Fund brought together artists, artisans, designers and curators from Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and the United States to create several public art works at the new AUCA campus.

AUCA’s new campus has a lot of exposed concrete as a part of the design concept, which sometimes is “forbidding and cold,” said Andrew Wachtel, AUCA’s President. “The idea of having the artwork hanging temporarily or permanently on various places and along the atrium wall will warm the building a little bit and make it more visually interesting against the factory-like interior,” added Mr. Wachtel.
