Brief Description

The purpose of the Gary Public Art Competition is to give artists living in Gary and the surrounding region an opportunity to undertake the challenge of creating a work of art in a public space within Gary, Indiana. With the support of the City of Gary and the Legacy Foundation through the Knight Donor Advised Fund, funding has been allocated for the competition. Projects may be multi-disciplinary, multi-media, and/or collaborative. They may involve movement, sound, light, technology, and/or be multi-sensory, as long as it does not pose a threat to public safety. Prior to final funding the project must adhere to all relevant city permitting processes and ordinances. Eight artists will be selected and awarded to design and execute their projects. Applicants must have a demonstrated connection to the City of Gary (live, work, family, childhood, etc).
