Call for Public Art and Placemaking Projects
Budget: $2,000 - $10,000
Deadline: July 15, 2022
The City of Burlington public art program invites artists, artist-led teams and community groups to submit their ideas to create art in public spaces celebrating Burlington’s diverse communities. We want your creative ideas to activate a community space and will provide project support to make it happen!
Projects must be presented or installed within Burlington city limits between August and December 2022. The projects may remain installed / displayed for a maximum of five (5) years (where appropriate). Project locations must be approved by the City of Burlington and must take place on city-owned land or private property which is accessible to the public (where written permission has been given by the owner).
The public art program will support successful applicants in the creation of the artwork by providing resources and staff support through the planning, installation and execution of the project. This can include connections to artists and fabricators, assistance with permits and permissions as well as general project support.
Who Can Apply?
This opportunity is open to individual artists working in all mediums (emerging to established), artist teams, artist collectives, ad hoc groups, or arts and culture organizations, as well as partnerships and collaborations between arts and non-arts applicants. Applicants from equity seeking groups are especially encouraged to apply.
