University of Kentucky
Gatton Student Union Center
Xibitz collaborated with Perkins&Will to create a branded environment for the Gatton Student Union Center, a gathering place for students and faculty with a wide range of options for dining, entertainment, and education opportunities. This facility is already home to the King Culture Center, Dinkle-Mas Suite for LGBTQ Resources, WRFL Radio, and the Center for Student Involvement.
Xibitz produced and installed a large-scale, realistic, bronze wildcat sculpture, along with digitally printed, custom graphics that can be enjoyed throughout the facility. The custom cat paws that traverse the floor play the University’s fight song when a student or visitor walks through the lobby.
Finally, Xibitz created custom printed gradient Lintec window film throughout the facility along with various locations of stainless steel and custom painted, dimensional lettering. We crafted a light sculpture that forms the state of Kentucky to always show pride in the Wildcat’s home state.
