    TWG Seeks Artist for New Commissioned Art

    TWG is looking to commission an artist to create public artwork for their new housing development, The Stella, and has issued a Request for Qualifications (RFQ). The project budget is $43,930 and installation is anticipated for May or June, 2025.

    The Stella is a new multi-family project that includes both market rate and affordable units. The artwork should bring awareness of the history of the neighborhood around 18th and Meridian St., and potentially also provide a function as a screening/fencing element. Sculptural artwork is preferred.

    Eligibility: Professional artists over 18 living in central Indiana

    Preferences: Artists who have previously created large-scale artwork, or exterior public art of any kind; artists who have experience with a community-based process; have experience creating artwork that blends form and function
