Brief Description

Haymarket Plaza is located in Downtown Eau Claire, next to the Pablo Center at the Confluence. Its design and theme is the result of a very collaborative and inclusionary public input process, and provides multiple forms and locations of seating, creating a flexible, urban space that can welcome intimate gatherings and as well as large group functions The 3 sculptures chosen for Haymarket Plaza will be large-scale, and designed by artists or teams for permanent or semi-permanent installation. The selected sculptures will be constructed of durable materials, with safety and the extreme elements of our climate in mind. Their presence will attract people through the innovative use of form and materials. We encourage artists to consider the culture, history and geography of the Chippewa Valley. The adjacent Pablo Center will be a creative beacon, drawing people to the arts, and the chosen sculptures will reflect this. Artists can apply for 1, 2 or all 3 sculptures.
