Brief Description

The Arts & Science Council is accepting qualifications from artists/artist teams for a public art opportunity at the new Mecklenburg County North East Community Resource Center (NE CRC).

The selected artist will work with the ASC, Mecklenburg County Asset and Facilities Management, Gensler, and the communities of North East Charlotte, NC to create an impactful, integrated artwork that responds to the parameters of the site, the aesthetics of the architecture, and assists in creating a safe, welcoming, and inclusive space. The NE CRC will be located on the site of the former North Park Mall with other buildings and an adjacent parking lot. The selected artist should consider ways that art can provide visual continuity throughout the site, while assisting with wayfinding and traffic calming. The artwork should align with the County’s project vision and support the principles of trauma informed design – creating physical spaces that promote safety, well-being, healing, and dignity
