  • Brief Description

    The Greater Augusta Arts Council is requesting proposals from qualified sculptors or artist teams to create a unique, durable, low-maintenance, meaningful, and beautiful sculpture to be placed in the center of the fully landscaped Twiggs Circle traffic roundabout. The purpose of the sculpture is to create a highly visible, beautiful, and meaningful addition to the ongoing Golden Blocks public history through public art place-keeping project. The Golden Blocks project highlights the rich cultural legacy of the historically Black neighborhoods of Laney Walker and Bethlehem, in public spaces, inviting lifelong residents, newcomers, and visitors to enjoy the revitalization of the area while celebrating its past.The request for proposals is open to all professional sculptors and artist teams residing in the Southeast region of the United States (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee).
