Brief Description

Creative Discovery Museum (CDM), a children’s museum in Chattanooga, TN, is seeking qualifications from artists and artist led teams. Up to three (3) teams will be selected and each awarded a $3,500 stipend to develop site-specific concept design proposals for an interactive gateway sculpture in the museums’ newly designed plaza. The winning concept design will be used to fundraise for the public artwork and plaza redesign construction, concurrent with a major facility and exhibit renovation at CDM. The artist or artist team will work with the existing design team for the plaza which includes Franklin Architects and WMWA Landscape Architects. The selected artistic concept will be a pivotal centerpiece for a new and innovative community gathering place that unifies the Museum block and enhances its vibrancy.
