In addition to giving – asked-for and unsolicited – advice to the Executive Board, the task of the Art Committee is fourfold:
- maintaining and managing the visual art collection of the university;
- caring for and contributing to the expansion of this collection;
- caring for and contributing to the expansion of the graphic arts collection;
- drawing attention to the art collection of the TU/e in general.
For the coming years the Art Committee TU/e has drawn up a new policy plan. Every year it wants to organize a project around art, science and technology, which will be shaped in cooperation with a Department and an artist. The intention is for this project to develop into a work of art, which can be added to the existing collection.
The Art Committee also supports projects in the areas of art, culture, architecture and design, both with recommendations and financially. Such as States of Nature, Blob art Pavillion, KOE and in 2006 De Betekenaar, a project of Hugo Vrijdag.
At present the TU-e Art Committee consists of:
Prof.ir. Jouke Post, chairman.
Prof. dr. Peter Hilbers
Gerard Verhoogt, secretary/conservator.
Drs. Joep Huiskamp.
Drs. Paul Bezembinder.
dr. Jacob Voorthuis Anneroos Dijkhuis
