Request for Proposals: Greektown Public Art Installation

Issue Date: October 30th, 2018

Submission Deadline: December 30th, 2018

Request To: Greater Baltimore Sculpture Artists

The Greater Greektown Neighborhood Alliance (GGNA), on behalf of Greektown residents, requests proposals from sculpture artists for a public sculpture to be installed at the intersection of Eastern Avenue and South Lehigh Street, in Baltimore, MD. This project is a continuation of the Association’s efforts to beautify the community of Greektown and is driven by a group of community members who hope to transform this barren median into a true neighborhood gateway. The purpose of this RFP is to select an artist to implement a two-phase approach to creating the public sculpture. The first phase includes community engagement to determine themes relevant to neighbors and capture resident input. The second phase includes the design, fabrication, and installation of the sculpture, with assistance from GGNA and the Southeast Community Development Corporation (Southeast CDC), pending final review by the Baltimore City Department of Transportation (DOT).
