LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Students at the University of Kansas are creating a commissioned artwork for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

Matthew Burke, a KU associate professor of sculpture, is leading a class called, "Special Topics in Art: The Federal Reserve Commission," which will be offered each semester through fall 2014. Five students are enrolled this semester.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/HQcTav ) the students' mission is to conceive, design and execute a work of art to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the bank, established in 1914. The students will present their proposals to the bank in December.

The bank also has other original artworks from regional artists. But Kevin Wright, the bank's project coordinator for the commissioned KU artwork, says it's the first time the bank has tried this type of collaboration.
