The City of Moscow and the Moscow Arts Commission announce new sculpture installations at the Intermodal Transit Center Sculpture Garden, which will remain on view until May 2025.
Artworks by one Moscow-area artist and three University of Idaho students from the College of Art + Architecture were selected for a one-year installation at the Transit Center. Featured artists and artworks are: Carpool by Emma Alford, The Strix by Lucy French, DNA Helix by James Gale, and Ebullience by May Hagan.

Public art is at the heart of Moscow’s creative culture, and with a collection including works by local and regional artists, its public spaces reflect the Inland Northwest’s tradition of artistic excellence. 

The Intermodal Transit Center Sculpture Garden was created by the City of Moscow Arts Department in 2012, and it provides art viewing opportunities for the public as well as exhibition space for emerging regional artists. Each year, a selection panel chooses sculptures to be displayed at the Sculpture Garden for approximately twelve months. These works are viewed by travelers utilizing the many modes of transportation supported by the Intermodal Transit Center.

The City of Moscow’s acquisition of public art began in the 1980s, and is supported in part by a 1% for the Arts fund established by ordinance in 2004. A Public Art Master Plan guides the Moscow Arts Commission, Arts staff, and community members as they incorporate new works into the City’s landscape. Temporary Collection artworks include vinyl-wrapped traffic boxes, bus shelters and installations at the ITC Sculpture Garden. The City’s Portable Collection is comprised of over 100 works that are prominently displayed in City of Moscow buildings. The Permanent Collection features an inventory of 15 installations, including several multi-work series. These can be found in the City’s parks, public buildings and rights-of-way; they are prominent landmarks that have come to define the community as a center for the arts in the region. 

Moscow is rich with diversity of thought, inhabited by minds open to possibility and creative interpretation. As such, the public art program celebrates the artist as a professional and valued business partner while welcoming a broad range of media and art-making processes into its collection.
