Just about everywhere you turn, you'll find public art on campus. The Public Art Program, which began in 1998, was put in place by the Board of Regents in order to enrich the campus environment. Today, there are more than 115 installations spread out between the Texas Tech University System's multiple campuses. Each piece is funded using one percent of the estimated total cost of every major capital project.
