Call for Art: TC Arts Commission
Traverse City Arts Commission seeks applicants for West Front Street Banners. Deadline extended to 8/15/2022 at 4pm. Information, timeline and submission available at: https://tcpublicart.org/calls-for-entry. RFP available here.
Up to nine local artists will be selected to design thirty (30) digital images that will be placed on pole banners along West Front Street. The banners will serve to enhance the experience, aesthetic and sense-of-place of West Front Street. The theme of the banners is “fresh perspectives of downtown.” Submissions should reflect different perspectives of Downtown Traverse City.
The banners along West Front Street were initially installed as part of a comprehensive streetscaping project in 2015. The design and color scheme for all 30 banners at that time was universal. The banners were planned to be replaced in 2022. In cooperation with Britten Banners, the Arts Commission is using this opportunity to bring color and art into this highly visual streetscaping element. To be clear, the Arts Commission is excited for this banners to serve as “art”, rather than the promotional/celebratory banners that are utilized in other parts of downtown.
This is a project of the Traverse City Arts Commission. See https://tcpublicart.org/calls-for-entry for information and submission. Deadline 8/15.
