The purpose of AUCA Public Art Program was to bring together artists, artisans, designers and curators locally, regionally and internationally through a series of collaborative workshops, creative dialogue and ongoing exhibitions that would inform the designs and fabrication of several public art works at the new American University of Central Asia (AUCA) campus in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, designed by HMA2 Architects.
The AUCA Public Art Program aimed to provide students, faculty and the general public a campus enriched with unique artworks that reflect, connect and integrate local, regional and international culture. The new building provided a showcase for new work, through temporary and permanent installations, in indoor and outdoor spaces, throughout the main campus.
