  • Brief Description

    Wisconsin Sea Grant is celebrating its 50th anniversary year through a special commission for a piece of public art that will be displayed in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

    Sea Grant, headquartered at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and with field offices around the state, is a science-based organization focused on Great Lakes research, education and outreach. It is part of a network of 34 Sea Grant programs nationwide in coastal and Great Lakes states.

    Sea Grant and the City of Sturgeon Bay are partnering on this artistic endeavor and invite proposals from qualified artists for an original artwork to be displayed outdoors at Sturgeon Bay City Hall. Artists, or artist teams, may submit proposals for two-dimensional works of art that reflect Great Lakes science themes. An online application portal opened on April 12, 2022.
