Brief Description

The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs invites artists and artist teams to submit proposals for a series of site-specific, life-sized, bronze statues of civil-rights leaders seated on bronze benches that will be installed on MLK Drive in Mozley Park in Atlanta, Georgia. We will install the sculptures and benches in four locations along MLK in Mozley Park and install inlaid information on each leader in front of the benches. The sculptures, bench design, and constructions costs must be integrated into the budget of the artist selected. The featured Civil Rights leaders will be chosen with the help of the community and finalized before production starts.
