FACEWALL

Facewall is a 42-foot-wide stainless steel sculpture integrated into the Second Street façade of the new arts & humanities building on the Chico State campus. Made up of 1,000 faces in silhouette of students, faculty, staff & community members, the artwork is comprised of 79 vertical stainless steel planes perpendicular to Second Street. Each 11-foot tall plane or “totem” includes 12-14 unique profiles.

The idea of inclusivity is key to the creation of the artwork. Facewall reflects the vibrant community that makes up Chico, these individuals stand like totems on the facade of the arts & humanities building, quietly watching over the equally diverse group of people who will see it every day.

FACEWALL was commissioned by California State University, Chico in 2016.
