Public Art – Vestibule of the MLK Library
- Budget: $10,000
Eligibility: All artists, designers, and art/design teams aged 18 or older with Federal Tax ID
The District of Columbia Public Library (DCPL) Public Art Program is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) from individual artists, designers or art/design teams to create a twodimensional artwork. The work will be a vinyl decal design applied to the interior glass walls of the main entrance of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial (Central) Library, at 901 G St. NW, in conjunction with a major modernization project to be completed in 2020. The artwork for this space should be a creative visual interpretation of Dr. King’s legacy as it connects to the Library, and which reflects multiple perspectives from D.C. communities. The selected artist will be required to create two public engagement programs at neighborhood libraries that inform some aspect of the design and/or creative process.
