Brief Description

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) is seeking a regional emerging or mid-career artist to pair with the artist selected to create a signature, site-specific work of art for the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. The mentorship will last throughout the scheduled three- to four-year design, fabrication and installation process and provide the mentee with the opportunity to learn directly from an accomplished public artist and be part of a project that has the opportunity to become a visual icon for the airport, Minneapolis-Saint Paul and the Upper Midwest region. The MAC is working with Via Partnership to help manage the selection process. The submission process is described below. The selected mentee will be provided with a stipend ranging from $5000 to $7000 annually for each of the three- to four-years of the project period. Materials are due April 6, 2018.
