City offers commissions for public art

Monday, February 7, 2022 by Tai Moses

The Economic Development Department is inviting artists to apply for its Art in Public Places program, which operates on a quarterly basis. The first quarter offers eight art projects totaling over $700,000 in commissions, with individual artwork commissions ranging from $30,000-$169,000. Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, who is the interim director of the EDD, said in a press release that as the city grows, it seeks to grow its public artwork collection, an endeavor that will “create jobs, not only for the commissioned artists, but also for subcontractors such as engineers, architects, fabricators, installers, materials vendors, lighting experts, and other professionals.” The first application period ends March 31.
