Brief Description

The Heritage Bridge project is an exciting endeavor in Janesville, Wisconsin, a midwestern city on the rise. An iconic, multi-faceted downtown revival has begun in the core of the community where the new Town Square embraces both sides of the Rock River. The ARISE Now partners plan to incorporate several art installations into the Heritage Bridge. These installations in the pedestrian bridge are some of the first of many public art projects the group is planning. ARISE Now is seeking to commission an artist to create 11 panels across the bridge within the railing, each designed to celebrate 6 heritage themes. From west to east, the themes are: agriculture, merchants, technology/innovation, arts/culture, civic, and industry. Semi-finalist artists will also be asked to create a design for sandblasting on the bridge deck around the panels. The client is holding a separate budget for the bridge deck sandblasting.
