Brief Description

The City of Alexandria, Virginia invites artists and artist teams residing in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia to submit their qualifications to be considered for this public art project. The project is for the new Pat Miller Neighborhood Square and will involve artwork expressed as signage that celebrates the surrounding Del Ray neighborhood. Based on their qualifications, one artist or artist team will be selected to design, fabricate, and install a vertical sign for the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square. The height of the sign will not exceed 15 feet and its width 2 feet. The words “Del Ray” must be on at least two of its sides. The eventual artwork/sign should reinforce the unique Art Deco character of Mt. Vernon Avenue and raise the awareness of visitors that they are in Del Ray. The chosen artist or artist team is expected to visit the site and meet with community members before the design proposal is complete.
