ARTIST CALL 

PUBLIC ART COMMISSION | GREENSBORO, NC 

BUDGET: $75,000 


THE PROJECT

The City of Greensboro is experiencing a revitalization of its downtown business district, and creative place-making projects have been identified as helping to drive increased vitality and engagement. Building on this momentum, the Cemala Foundation, a local foundation committed to enhancing the quality of life of the community, has approved funding for a public art commission that will be sited alongside the sidewalk in front of the main entrance to the Melvin Municipal Building located at 300 West Washington Street in downtown Greensboro. The City of Greensboro is also planning a related upgrade of the surrounding 52’ x 81’ plaza, including new concrete surfacing and pavers, as well as enhanced landscaping.

 

ARTIST ELIGIBILITY

The Call to Artists is open to all professional artists with experience in implementing and working in the public arena who live or work in the United States. Artists must be able to effectively work within the project timeline, communicate effectively with diverse audiences, and collaborate with representatives of both the Cemala Foundation and the City of Greensboro.
