The City of Denver’s Public Art Program seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create an original public artwork, or series of artworks, for the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library located at 2401 Welton St., in the Five Points neighborhood of Denver, CO. A 12-member selection panel of community representatives, arts and culture professionals, and civic leaders has been assembled to identify art opportunities, and to select and recommend an artist or artist team for this project. The selection panel has identified several interior locations on Level One of the library for potential art opportunities and will select one artist or artist team for the allocated total budget of approximately $20,000. Artworks could be created using diverse media including, but not limited to, paint, sculpture, and mosaic applications. Works that are engaging and help to tell the story of the library, neighborhood and surrounding communities are encouraged.
