Huntersville, , United States
The Public Art Commission of Huntersville, NC, is seeking five (5) pieces of leasable outdoor sculpture to be installed for two years on the Downtown Greenway running through Holbrook Park in town of Huntersville, NC.
Compensation to the selected artists will be provided by private donations and grants awarded by the Mecklenburg County Arts and Science Council, and Electricities. Each artist will receive a $2,000 stipend (per piece), exposure on the Town’s website, including a virtual map and tour of all public art installations, and other related media.
This sculpture exhibition will be located in Holbrook Park along the Downtown Greenway, which is part of a larger greenway vision for the Town, The Huntersville Vine. The Downtown Greenway includes sites for public art, functional items such as benches, swings, and a shelter. It also includes areas for active play such as pickleball/tennis courts, two (2) playgrounds, and bike racks. The Huntersville Vine is visualized as both symbolic and practical: feeding culture and commerce within the community, connecting residents to each other and businesses, and physically nurturing the environment by providing a habitat that is beneficial to all.
