Golden Triangle Business Improvement District Calls for Connecticut Avenue Public Art
DEADLINE: May 2, 2021, 11:59PM (EDT)
Calling all emerging and mid-career artists, artist teams, and designers! The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) invites you to submit your qualifications to be considered for a temporary public art project (up to two years) to be installed in Spring/Summer 2022. The artwork will be located in the heart of DC’s central business district on the Connecticut Avenue Median (at K Street NW). The goal of this artwork, located in a prominent location adjacent to Farragut Square, is to cultivate and support a strong DC public art community.
Artists and design teams must propose new artwork to be eligible. The scope of work includes the design, fabrication, and installation of one temporary artwork.
Budgets of up to $35,000 will be considered for the project. Fees for artists/artist teams cannot exceed 20% of the total project budget. Up to five semi-finalists may be selected to create concept proposals. Finalists will receive a design proposal stipend of $750 to develop a detailed concept and renderings.
