The Public Art Committee of Johnson City, TN is seeking proposals for an art project that incorporates identifying signage for the new Founders Park retention pond project in downtown Johnson City, Tennessee. The artwork must withstand varied environmental conditions, including occasional high water. Johnson City is distinguished as a community that embraces art, the environment, commerce, science, community, and education. The budget for this project is $50,000.

The park will eventually become integrated into what is envisioned as a greenway plan, a zone of property between downtown Johnson City and the campus of ETSU that would include patches of pollinator plants, sites for public art, as well as functional art – benches, planters, educational kiosks and bike racks. Opportunities for community events include art workshops and workshops on native plants and animals, using Brush Creek as an outdoor classroom for children. Nearby is the future home to the Johnson City Farmers Market. The greenway plan is envisioned as both symbolic and practical: feeding ideas and commerce between community and university, supplying exchanges between town and gown, as well as physically nurturing the environment and providing a habitat for beneficial birds and insects.
