Explore Texas Tech’s Public Art Collection
Texas Tech has one of the most beautiful college campuses in the world. While the perfect blend of Spanish-Renaissance, modern and English-Manor architecture certainly helps, what makes this campus truly unique is the cultural experience one gets strolling through it.
Public art has the intrinsic ability to shape our consciousness, inspire ideation and create a positive attitude. Every walk to class has the potential to become a different adventure as you open your mind and experience over 60 vastly diverse works of art. This first-class collection has been named one of the top 10 university public art collections in the U.S. by Public Art Review, the leading journal in the field of public art.
