Wooster Green committee seeking to commission work of art for site

Plans for Wooster Green

(Submitted by Wooster Green Steering Committee)

The Wooster Green Steering Committee is seeking to commission a work of public art for the newly developed community space situated in downtown Bowling Green.  The committee is requesting qualifications from artists and/or artist teams for this public art project. 

The Wooster Green Space is the site of a former public school. The Wooster Green Steering Committee will seek qualified artisans to propose a sculpture incorporating the theme of education, teaching and learning.

The budget for this project is $45,000. The budget includes all costs associated with the project including but not limited to: artist’s design fee, travel, materials, public presentation(s), documentation, transportation, permits, installation of the work and other contingencies. A nominal proposal stipend will be given to the finalists.

The project is open to all artists, age 18 and over, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, or physical or mental disability. Artist teams are eligible to apply, including teams from multiple disciplines.

The deadline for submission of qualifications is April 1. Check out the City’s website for details.
