“Picture CBC” is a 15-foot by 12-foot picture frame inspired by a similar one in the city of Innsbruck, Austria, in the city square. “Picture CBC” sits in the wildflower field at the intersection of Charco Road and Highway 181 North.
The oversized picture frame has the wildflower field in front of it and the college administration and theatre buildings in the background. The wildflowers are starting to bloom now. The late Margaret Moser donated funds to reseed the field last year. She will be remembered for her role in this project.
Anyone who wants to “frame” their visit to Bee County, Beeville and Coastal Bend College is encouraged to take pictures at any time. Students, employees, graduates, clubs and community members as well as tourists and businesses are encouraged to use “Picture CBC.”
The picture frame is a part of CBC’s permanent art collection. Outdoor sculptures made of wood, stone, metal and glass dot the landscape of the college and are always available for viewing. Some of the installations are donations by artists, alumni, clubs or civic groups; others are student projects.
Coastal Bend College has an extensive and diverse permanent art collection and the Simon Michael Art Gallery. The work of artists from around the world, Texas artists, faculty and students are part of the gallery schedule.
