The TU/e Art Commission bears responsibility for more than just managing the art collection. When buildings on the campus are renovated or newly built, the Art Commission tries to decorate them with new works of art. For example, Tijs Rooijakkers created his new sculpture 'Leap into the Deep' near the Flux building, and Gijs Frieling is preparing a new work of art for the Atlas building.


Also, the Art Commission supports all kinds of initiatives in the fields of art and culture, it organizes projects and exhibitions, and it places art in public spaces, both by giving advice and by providing funds. For example, for a number of years the commission organized the 'Day of Art', and a new official portrait of King Willem Alexander was acquired. This page describes this briefly.
