Brief Description

The District of Columbia Public Library (DCPL) Public Art Program is issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) and statements of interest from individual artists, designers or art/design teams for a ceiling treatment to be produced in conjunction with the modernization of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial (Central) Library, at 901 G St. NW. This is an opportunity to design a signature visual feature of the Library’s Grand Reading Room, drawing upon the Library’s vast Special Collections archive of D.C. History. Applicants are asked to submit samples of past work, along with a statement of interest that explains the relevance of past work to this opportunity, by August 31, 2017. From this application, a professional Review Panel will award stipends to semifinalists to develop full proposals. Applications to be sent through: https://dclibrary.submittable.com/submit
