  • Brief Description

    The Town of Waynesville (“The Town”) seeks to commission a professional artist or artist team to create site-specific, functional artwork to be installed at the Pigeon Community Multicultural Development Center located at 450 Pigeon Street in Waynesville, NC. The selected artist(s) will contract directly with the Town of Waynesville to successfully complete the full scope of the project within the projected budget and schedules.

    It is the intent to have the Public Art not be a single piece of art purchased and placed on sight, but to contract with the artist(s) to provide a site-specific and permanent installation(s) reflective of the overall design based on community-informed design and function. Art should be woven into the site and building architecture, creating, and enhancing the identity of the Town. The artist will work closely with the Town of Waynesville to identify the exact placement of the artwork once completed.


    Built in the 1950’s. Pigeon Street School has the task of educating rural America’s black community until desegregation in Haywood County introduced a chance for local culture to begin learning about and understanding one another. Since this time, Pigeon Street School has evolved into a bright epicenter driven to embrace an inclusive spirit and atmosphere of learning and sanctuary while serving the local community.

    Artwork Restrictions and Preferences
    The body of work must be durable, and easily cleaned in the event of vandalism. Artwork must fit into a defined space of 10’ x 15’ that is represented on the “Proposed Installation Location Map” which is included in the RFQ Packet.

    Please see commission document for full project information and application instructions.
