Brief Description

The goal of this project is to enrich the lively downtown area by creating a signature piece of artwork that enhances Morristown’s artistic reputation, speaks to the ideas of energy, movement and transformation, and honors Morristown’s rich history of innovation. The art should be viewed as a destination in and of itself, as well as a part of the aesthetic of the development that complements the modern architectural features of the buildings. This project will be focused on the public stairway, including the walls, ceiling and landings. A secondary portion of the project involves a 1,500 square foot open space area directly across the street from the stairwell that serves as the pedestrian entrance to a public parking deck. The artist will have latitude in their choice of medium and design specifics of their work. Projects that include both two- or three-dimensional art, as well as lighting installations of the stairwell are encouraged.
