The City of Erie is accepting qualifications from an artist or team of artists residing in Erie County for a public art opportunity located in Downtown Erie’s Perry Square Park. Finished artwork for this project will be incorporated into vinyl wraps covering a total of six signal cabinets and utility boxes in Perry Square. Funds were made available through grants from Erie Arts and Culture and Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts as well as additional funding provided by Erie Downtown Development Corporation.
The City is looking for artists with strong portfolios that are flexible and available to collaborate with project stakeholders on design and able to present their artwork in a print-ready digital format. An artist or team of artists will be selected that will create and submit a design proposal based on community and stakeholder input. The artist will be expected to lead the production of the artwork from concept to delivery. The fabrication and installation of vinyl wraps is not part of the artist’s work.
The artist stipend for this project is $3,000.
Deadline to Submit Materials: 4:30 PM (EST) Thursday, August 8, 2019
