The Hyattsville Community Development Corporation is accepting artist proposals for an interactive, permanent public artwork for the entrance gateway to the new Safeway development at University Town Center (UTC). Installation is to be complete by October 15, 2015. The sculpture will be sited east of America Boulevard, located in the outdoor pedestrian plaza / seating area beside the new “Lifestyle” Safeway, in clear view of entering and departing vehicular traffic and pedestrians. Artwork should be of an interactive nature; to enhance the pedestrian experience.
Thematically compatible pre-existing work will be considered, but original work, derived to be thematically consistent with the Call is preferred, and site-specific sculptures are encouraged.
Eligibility: Individual artists or artist teams from the greater metropolitan area or within 250 miles are eligible to respond. Locally established or emerging sculptors, woodworkers, metal-workers, and artists of any durable media are most welcomed. Prince George’s County-based artists are strongly encouraged to submit their work for consideration.
