  • Brief Description

    This RFQ represents an opportunity for an artist or artist-led team to create an artwork on the interior program wall at the North Plaza of the Windsor Chavis Nocho Community Complex (hereinafter “WCNCC”) located at 1601 East Gate City Boulevard in Greensboro, NC. This work will be a mosaic or relief sculptural wall approximately 12’ high by 24’ wide. The area is in the lobby entrance and program well and will be visible from the outside as well as the inside spaces. It is an ideal location for a memorable art experience that can be enjoyed by all who enter the facility.

    Project Summary and Goals:

    The collaboration between the City and the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro’s Public Art Endowment (PAE) meets the common goal of placing public art that benefits Greensboro’s cultural and economic landscape. This project spreads the considerable impact of public art to underserved areas and populations of Greensboro and will highlight the historical significance of this East Greensboro neighborhood. The project goals for WCNCC were identified in 2019 during the community engagement process to highlight the community based programmatic design. The project’s success is directly connected to the ability to listen to the community members and stakeholders, synthesize their input, and let the project become an authentic reflection of their needs and identities.

    The ten project priorities that resulted from these efforts are highlighted below:

    1. Create a unified facility (recreation center, library and park)
    2. Reconnect the sites
    3. Re-establish the New Windsor Chavis as the heart of the community
    4. Develop aquatics as a key part of the center
    5. Create a strong inside/outside connection
    6. Maximize both the building and site’s programmatic flexibility
    7. Visibility and intertwining of programs
    8. A place for knowledge of programs
    9. An inclusive facility for diverse ages and backgrounds
    10. Be a beacon of hope and pride

    The goals of WCNCC remain central to this project and the public art process should reflect the inclusion of the overall community that surrounds the WCNCC. The City and the PAE desire a work of art that represents the community’s input on the designs and highlights the uniqueness of the project into a true community hub.
