HSC guidelines: events, public displays/campus art and protocol processes

HSC Event Strategist & Protocol Officer and Campus Curator Shea Patterson Young is responsible for three essential campus processes – events, protocol and public displays/campus art.

Shea provides consultation across the campus to ensure HSC events correctly represent the HSC brand, mission, vision, purpose and values.
As HSC’s Campus Curator, Shea manages corporate art and public displays.
The HSC art guidelines are as follows:
HSC’s art and public displays provide an opportunity to educate, inform, commemorate and celebrate through the exhibit of artifacts, works of art and other materials. All exhibits and art will create an inviting environment for viewers (students, employees and visitors), enhance the campus environment, be mission centric, adhere to the display standards as a State of Texas entity, while striving to be aesthetically pleasing and meaningful to the campus.
When a display or artwork is desired, please reach out to Shea at shea.pattersonyoung@unthsc.edu.
The curator collaborates with Facilities Management and the Office of Marketing and Communications as needed. In an effort toward consistency around campus, there are approved styles that can be customized for specific areas. Resources for more decorative artwork are available.
Following is a list of various spaces and guidelines for public displays and campus art:
• Public spaces are open areas such as lobbies, building entrances, Deans’ suite lobbies and hallways between offices/departments. One example of public spaces can be found in the areas to and from elevators. These spaces require use of approved styles and project management.
• Semi-public areas are located within departments. For example, an area located beyond Dean’s suite lobbies, that are within one department but still have internal and minimal external traffic. These are governed by each department. However, a recommendation is made that these be decorated uniformly within the space. There are resources available from the HSC curator for framed artwork such as prints, plex-prints, lithographs or giclees.
• Private spaces are people’s individual offices where they are free to display personal items, art, family photos or things that reflect their personalities. This does not include painting the walls.
