Brief Description

The Madison County Arts Council, the Town of Marshall, Madison County Government, the Marshall Downtown Association and the North Carolina Arts Council are seeking qualifications from artists or artist teams to design a system of visual art markers to connect the arts and cultural assets from downtown Marshall’s Main Street (The Marshall Mile) across the French Broad river to Blannahassett Island. Three artists will be selected to visit Marshall and interview. The selected artist will return to meet with the community and key stakeholders and create a proposal. The proposed art markers can include sculpture, gateways, light pole attachments, interactive pieces, mosaics, sidewalk or wall inlays, murals and light installations. Marker designs can be from a variety of mediums or a combination of mediums. Up to three (3) elements will be funded through this project, but the design plan may include more elements that can be produced over time.
