Brief Description

Genus Landscape Architects, in partnership with the Ottumwa Legacy Foundation, the City of Ottumwa and the Iowa Economic Development Authority, is looking for professional artists to submit their qualifications for this innovative public art opportunity. Artists from all cultural and political backgrounds who have had experience working in the public sector are encouraged to submit. This opportunity includes the design and installation of 1 – 3 art pieces to be attached to the buildings along Canteen Alley in Downtown Ottumwa [ Exhibit B ]. The pieces can be a downspout and/or a vessel and must be fully integrated functionally and visually with the building. In addition to an impactful aesthetic quality, the art pieces must function as a rainwater delivery system – rain enters the art piece at the roof line, flows through the downspout/art piece on the exterior of the building and is distributed to the Canteen Alley landscape.
