Brief Description

For this round of Creative Sparks the City of Bloomington’s Creative Placemaking Commission in partnership with Artistry seeks proposals for permanent or temporary sculptures that will be on display in Bloomington’s South Loop district – specifically at Bloomington Central Station Park (for temporary or permanent sculptures) or River Ridge Park (for temporary sculptures). Due to the impact of COVID-19 and the unforeseen duration of the impact and health guidelines, our intention is to create more opportunities to physically distance while enjoying the outdoors. Sculptures will be included in our South Loop Guidebook within the Otocast Audio Guide App allowing for a safe and fun way to find and learn about the new sculptures as well as other creative placemaking projects in the area.The selected sculptures will, independently and collectively, bring beauty, delight, interest, and a sense of whimsy to the area and will be enjoyed by South Loop residents, workers, and visitors.
