The Arts Council of Indianapolis, in partnership with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful (KIB), is requesting qualifications from artists or artist teams who are interested in creating outdoor public artwork for a pocket park on the east side of Indianapolis. Eligibility is for experienced artists currently living in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio or Kentucky. The project budget is $20,000 (all-inclusive) and the application receipt deadline is December 19, 2014 (not a postmark deadline!).
Artwork for this space should be constructed primarily of natural materials, potentially recycled or repurposed, and could address the history of the neighborhood. Options include, but are not limited to, a creative shelter, public seating, or a “signature” piece(s) located in the center of, or adjacent to, the pond. The use of repurposed stone is of interest to the community. Artists will be paired with the separately-selected landscape architect and will participate in the design of the space in which the artwork will be situated.
