    Each artist will be applying to create a site-specific sculpture/kinetic mobile for one skylight that will be located on two different concourses throughout BNA. There are 4 skylights, 1 on B and 3 on C. Each application will be for one skylight. Artists will be assigned to a specific skylight after being selected to exhibit in the competition. The skylights have glass panels and are open to the exposed sky, UV protective glass is not installed and exposure to extreme sunlight and high temperatures are possible. There is a weight limit of 300 lbs. per sculpture, per skylight. See Exhibit A for specific dimensions of each of the skylights and locations of anchoring devices within the skylights. Toggle bolts secured in drywall can be added for additional anchoring materials.
