News Flash Template (8)

The City of Moscow and the Moscow Arts Commission have extended the artist submission period for the Andrew Becker Memorial to Nov. 12 at 5 p.m.

The sculpture will honor the memory of Andrew Thatcher Becker, a longtime Moscow resident whose advocacy for people with disabilities greatly impacted the community. The sculpture will be permanently installed at the Intermodal Transit Center Sculpture Garden.

After studying political science at the University of Idaho, Becker pursued activism in many forms, including teaching as well as advocacy for human rights and the rights of people with disabilities. Becker shared energy with his community at Milestone Decisions and in service to the Moscow Human Rights Task Force, City of Moscow Human Rights Commission and the Mobility Task Force.

The total amount of funding available is not to exceed $5,000. The project funding is inclusive of artist’s fee, travel, fabrication, engineering, materials, installation, documentation and other costs accrued by the artist specific to this project. This project was made possible by a gift from the family of Andrew Becker.

Artists from Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Wyoming and Utah are eligible to apply for this project.

###

The Intermodal Transit Center (ITC) resulted from a $1.5 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER II) grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The facility is designed to feature exterior covered structures with a foot passenger loading zone and secure parking for buses and bicycles. The ITC links services provided by the local transit provider, the University of Idaho's Vandal Shuttle, and intercity bus service provided by Northwestern Trailways and Wheatland Express. The facility also provides access for taxis, vanpools and carpools, and expands pedestrian and bicyclist accessibility with access to Paradise Path. The components of the ITC have been designed to provide a seamless, one-stop concept for community transportation.

The ITC 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, four new sculptures are chosen for display at the Sculpture Garden. These works are viewed by travelers utilizing the many modes of transportation supported by the ITC.
