Call For Public Art For PVD Fest 2019

The temporary public art projects at PVDFest 2019  will announce the start of PVDFest activities and will remain on site throughout Summer 2019. These new and original works should enhance pedestrian-level interactions by making the streetscape more vibrant, interactive and playful, surprising, or beautiful.  Projects will be selected as the most appropriate to the site with the caveat that the installations will be on view prior to, during, and for up to four months after PVDFest 2019 (the estimated exhibition period is May 31 – until October 31, 2019). The Art Selection Panel will review proposals for projects that maintain structural and visual integrity, remain responsive and interactive, and generate excitement for the entirety of its exhibition.

Through this CALL FOR ART, three local artists will be awarded $10,000 to design, fabricate and install new original work at one of three pre-selected sites on the Festival Footprint: the Civic Center Garage facade,  the City Hall apron, and the Alex and Ani City Center.

Artists will be selected through a competitive, two-tiered process. Eligible artists must submit their qualification materials no later than November 1, 2018. For more information, click here.
