  • Brief Description

    Portsmouth NH 400 is a nonprofit 501c3 organization founded to celebrate Portsmouth NH’s 400th anniversary in 2023. It is soliciting proposals from qualified artists for public art to be installed in 2023 in the City’s Bohenko Gateway Park. Proposals are being accepted through September 23, 2022.


    PNH 400 has arranged its organization and programs around seven specific themes or pillars: arts and culture, commerce and trade, community and neighborhoods, education, maritime and military, signature events, and legacy projects. The Legacy Task Force is charged with spearheading projects that will last beyond the 2023 celebration, enriching the city for years to come.


    After soliciting input from the community and the city, the plan is to create a maritime themed sculpture garden in the city’s Bohenko Gateway Park.
