    Roger StollerThe Pima County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a $200,000 contract at the June 7 meeting with Stoller Studio, Inc. to design and install public art at the voter-approved Pima Animal Care Center.

    The Tucson Pima Arts Council (TPAC) facilitated the artist selection for the improved animal care facility. The selection panel, made up of members of the community, recommended artist Roger Stoller of Stoller Studio, Inc. to lead this public art project. 

    Stoller Studio, Inc. is an independent art studio that creates fine art and functional sculpture. The studio specializes in bronze casting, steel fabrication and stone sculptures. Since 2002, the studio has designed and installed over ten public art projects throughout Southern California including a similar project it’s currently working on with a zoo in Texas.

    Funding for this public art project will come from the $22 million budget for the new PACC. In accordance with the county’s Public Art Program, one percent of the budget for capital improvement projects must be set aside for public art. 

    Stoller will begin working with the TPAC selection panel and PACC staff to come up with a final design that not only complements the design of the new facility, but also resonates with PACC’s role in the community.
