Public Art Opportunities

Call to Artists: Riverdale Park Public Art: 12/17

On behalf of the Town of Riverdale Park, the Hyattsville CDC is announcing a Call for Artists for the Riverdale Park Public Art Initiative. The Initiative seeks five (5) sculptures of various styles and sizes to display for a one year-long placement, at pre-determined, publicly-accessible sites within the Town of Riverdale Park. As part of The Town’s plan to create an engaging, publicly accessible outdoor sculpture gallery across its many neighborhoods, we seek site-appropriate sculptural work fitting of each chosen location.

All sites have an existing installed concrete footer/pad, specifically designed to accommodate a range of sizes of work and a variety of bases. Submittals may be of any durable, easily-maintained, exposure-ready media, and, due to the planned temporary nature of the initiative’s installations should be of existing or nearly completed work. Following a jurying process, the works will be installed by the selected artist for year-long exhibition.

At this issuance, the stipend for selection in this Call is $2,000 per selected work, to include all artist fees, costs for installation, documentation of the installed work, transportation, and insurance.

Deadline: December 17, 2018.

Art Connection in the Capital Region Seeks Artwork: Ongoing

The Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization originated in 2004 to expand community access to art in the greater metropolitan area of Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.

Modeled after The Art Connection in Boston, which was founded by painter and sculptor Fay Chandler in 1995, ACCR facilitates the placement of original works of art donated by artists and art collectors within not-for-profit social service organizations to encourage healing and provide inspiration.

Organizations benefiting from this unique partnership often serve individuals faced with the most vulnerable circumstances and include: shelters, children's centers, and treatment facilities, amongst others.

The criterion for placement stipulates that a partnering organization must reside within the Capital Region and have no funding for art. Artwork that is donated to the not-for-profit is considered a permanent donation, cannot be sold, and must be exhibited in a secure public area where clients served by the organization have direct access to it.

To learn more about The Art Connection in the Capital Region, the communities it empowers, and the art donation process, click here or call 202-536-2607.
