Brief Description

Eau Claire Public Arts is seeking new sculptures for a Haymarket Plaza for placemaking and to enhance the creative economy. Artists can apply for 1, 2 or all 3 sculptures. The sculptures in 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. Various additional sculptures may be added periodically.
