The UrbanArt Commission (UAC) works to create opportunities for artists and neighborhoods to connect and shape spaces through public art. Since 2002, UAC has managed the City of Memphis’s Percent-For-Art Program, which allocates funds annually to develop public art in connection to capital improvement projects. UAC, in partnership with the City of Memphis, will commission a new sculpture project for the exterior of the Cordova Library that encapsulates the vision of Memphis Public Library and Information Center (MPLIC) as a timeless vessel for literacy, early childhood development, educational achievement, workforce development, and the individual growth of Memphians. Any artist currently residing within the tri-state area of Tennessee, Arkansas & Mississippi. Artists are invited to apply as a team if desirable.
