Mecklenburg County Public Art Opportunity
- Budget: $255,000
Eligibility: This call is open to all U.S. professional artists.
The Arts & Science Council is accepting qualifications from artists/artist teams for a public art opportunity at Torrence Creek Tributary #2, Huntersville, NC. The selected artist will work with the ASC, Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation, Dewberry DesignBuilders, Inc., and the local community to create an impactful artwork that responds to the parameters of the site and the themes identified by the project team. The programmable, permanent light installation should increase visibility and improve pedestrian security throughout the 300-foot tunnel. The minimum light level requirement is 200 lumens. The design should transform the underpass into a dramatic and lively suburban experience through the use of interactive and animated colors or patterns of varying intensity throughout the tunnel. The artwork should encourage the use of the Torrence Creek Greenway by those who live, work and play and in area.
