Brief Description

The Akron Civic Theatre, as part of their Capital Campaign, is requesting qualifications from artists who are interested in producing public artwork. The Capital Campaign is an exciting $8.5 million transformation of the “Jewel on Main Street” in downtown Akron, Ohio. For 90 years, the Akron Civic Theatre has been a hub of creative opportunities and a place to make lasting memories. Building upon that rich history, the goals of the Capital Campaign are to create a better entertainment experience ensuring it endures for generations to come.

Rather than submit proposals for specific project ideas, this RFQ seeks artists’ qualifications and general thoughts about this opportunity. The selected artists will work with the theater staff, the Capital Campaign Public Arts Task Force, and other key stakeholders to develop their specific innovative, original art related to the mission of the Akron Civic Theatre and in alignment with other aspects of the Capital Campaign that are well underway.
