Brief Description

The Barwell Road Project will add turn lanes, sidewalks, and bike lanes on Barwell Road. The corridor includes residential homes and a well loved public space consisting of the Barwell Road Elementary School, City of Raleigh Firestation and Barwell Community Center complex. Create stand alone or integrated artwork along Barwell Road. This opportunity is open to individual artists and other artist teams. The public art can be stand-alone or integrated into the site. Potential opportunities include a stand alone sculpture, artwork sited at the community complex, and/or artwork integrated into pedestrian paving, lighting, benches/bike racks or other site elements. The artist will work closely with the design team, project stakeholders, and neighborhood Citizen Advisory Councils to ensure a successful outcome.
