Brief Description

Reimagine Runnemede is seeking an artist or team of artists to create a gateway to a meditative labyrinth. RR is looking for applications showing artists conceptual plans and preliminary designs in advance of fabrication and installation of the work to be located in Beaver Branch Park (Green Acres) Runnemede, NJ.

The selection committee requests that the gateway be free-standing, appropriate in scale to the project site, and thematically function as a transitional portal to the meditative labyrinth. Although we would like to leave the interpretation open to the artist, it has been discussed that the gateway be a circular archway, possibly functioning as a trellis or incorporating a vine motif. The design should include a location for a donor plaque which will be supplied to the artist. The artist may also make recommendations on the accompanying landscape design and plantings for the site.
