Policy on Performance of Installation Art in Public Spaces on Campus
While the college fully support a student’s right to artistic expressions and recognizes the merits of performance and installation art, students must comply with MCAD policies in order to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for everyone
All performance and Installation art that is designated to be on the MCAD campus in public space, in classrooms, outside classrooms and gallery spaces, requires a prior written authorization from the MCAD Office of Operations. This is necessary to ensure that the desired space is available and the property damage and/or safety hazards will not result.
Students are required to abide by all MCAD policies regarding drugs, alcohol, weapons, explosives and/or other hazard materials. The Installation Policy is as follows:
•No Installation is permitted in any fire escape tower or egress corridor
•A written proposal must be submitted for approval to the class faculty member, Chair of the department and for final approval by Director of Operations for safety.
•Installation materials will be limited based on location
•All areas must be cleaned after installation
•Faculty member will be responsible for monitoring all areas where installations have been installed and disassembled.
•Departments will be charged for any damage or clean up related to the installation
•Installations will be permitted for no longer than 72 hours. Exceptions to this will be considered
•If an installation is installed without approval, the Director of Operations will remove it from the installation site and a fine will be issued
•Setting off fireworks, explosives, or any similar device in or on MCAD property is not permitted.
•Displaying or using a knife, gun, or other weapon is not permitted
•Possession or use of illegal drugs (including alcohol) is not permitted
•Exposing others to blood, urine, feces, chemicals, or other hazardous materials. This is considered an unsafe practice and is not acceptable.
Students interested in presenting performance or installation art outside their classroom or gallery/exhibition space must submit a proposal at least two weeks prior to the start date to the Director of Facilities, outlining the details and the timetable for the artwork. Also, the artwork must comply with all city, state, and local regulations.
Installation request forms are available in the Director of Facilities Office. The committee will review the proposals and you will receive notification. Any art deemed a public health and/or safety hazard as well as those installations that have not received authorization will be removed immediately and a fine will be issued.
The space in which artwork may be installed is limited solely to the Moore College of Art Campus. Please note that MCAD does not own the trees, sidewalks, streets, signs, telephone or light poles -- they are property of the City of Philadelphia.
The Gallery Director coordinated performances and Installation art proposals for The Levy Gallery /The Goldie Paley Gallery and the Wilson Front Lobby
Graffiti and defacement of MCAD buildings and public or private property are not considered artwork. Violators will be subject to fines and disciplinary action (See student handbook).
