The City of Bloomington Arts Commission is issuing a Call to Artists to submit proposals for consideration for a site-specific gateway sculpture commission for South Walnut Street in Bloomington, Indiana.
The City of Bloomington and the Arts Commission recognize that the visual quality of public space has a profound impact on the community at large. Well-designed streetscapes can improve the appearance and safety of an area, give it new vibrancy and make the public feel welcome. Both quality design and public art in public spaces contribute to livable communities.
The South Walnut Street Gateway Sculpture Art Selection Panel, comprised of artists, arts professionals, project partners and community members will review responses to the Call to Artists and recommend an artist (or artist team) for this opportunity. The City of Bloomington is committed to investing approximately $25,000 towards public art on South Walnut Street. Funding for this commission will be provided by the City of Bloomington's Percentage for the Arts program and administered by the City of Bloomington’s Arts Commission (“Arts Commission”).
Submission Deadline: 06/28/2013
