Land and Building Use Committee
If you are interested in having an art installation, sculpture, or any project that will impact the appearance of campus, you can submit a proposal to the Land and Buildings Use Committee.
LBUC addresses environmental, safety, and aesthetic concerns and in some cases will provide guidance to make sure that projects meet these criteria. Please submit proposals two weeks in advance of a project date, to ensure that the committee can review your proposal in time.
For questions or concerns, please contact Erin McKenny in the Barn. If your installation is accompanied by an event, please contact the Budget & Events Committee in addition to LBUC.
Land and Building Use Committee Mission
This Committee is charged by the President to set policies governing the ongoing management of the physical environment of the campus. Utilizing the campus master plan as a touchstone, the Committee is responsible for evaluating proposals for projects that interface with Bennington’s buildings and landscape. While preserving and enhancing the aesthetic quality and character of the campus as a whole is a central objective, the Committee also reviews projects with a view to considerations such as accessibility, safety, maintenance, and environmental impact. Proposals for alterations to any exterior or interior spaces or the installation of sculpture or art (outside of VAPA) belonging to the College must be made on forms available from the Office of the Associate Vice President for Facilities Management and Planning. Temporary art exhibitions must be approved by the appropriate offices. The Committee is chaired by the Associate Vice President for Facilities Management and Planning.
