Brief Description

Davidson College is accepting qualifications from creative individuals or teams that include professional artist(s) in partnership with landscape architects, architects, and/or engineers to create a commemorative project, integrating artwork and landscape. The selected finalist will be asked to create a permanent, interactive space and artwork sited at a highly visible and prominent location on the Davidson College campus, determined by the Special Committee on Commemoration. The completed space and artwork will serve as a nexus for healing, reflection, recovery, and a reaffirmation of Davidson’s commitment to equality and justice in keeping with the Project Background stated above. Its goal is to facilitate intimate individual experiences as well as support both formal and informal collective gatherings of members of the campus and the broader community, including ongoing speaker presentations and campus events.
