Brief Description

SmART Kinston City Project Foundation, the Kinston Community Council for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council are seeking proposals from artists or artist teams to design a system of visual art markers to connect pedestrians from downtown Kinston, NC to the scenic Riverwalk on the Neuse River. The wayfinding series will begin at the Kinston Community Council for the Arts and continue along the designated Avenue of the Arts to the Riverwalk (Blount Street west to Pearson Park entrance). Three artists will be selected to visit the city and create a proposal. The artwork can range from a series of gateways or other sculptures, to light pole attachments, mosaics, sidewalk or wall inlays, or light installations. The selection committee is open to a variety of mediums or combination of mediums to achieve the goal of the project. Three elements will be funded through this project, but the design plan may include more interventions to be produced over time.
