Brief Description

ArtsFairfax is accepting qualifications from artists or artist teams for a public art project in Fairfax County, VA. The selected artist/team will design, fabricate, and install a permanent work of art at The Arden in Spring/Early Summer 2022. The artist/team will be responsible for designing, fabricating, and installing a permanent iconic work of art that will welcome residents and provide place-making for the area. Both figurative and abstract designs will be considered. The development has completed an extensive entitlement review and approval with Fairfax County, along with other stakeholders. Consequently, a concept/direction for the art piece was agreed upon by these stakeholders. Any variation from the general nature of the approved concept would require interpretation by planning for final approval. However, the artist is encouraged to “think outside of the box” with the design of the piece and to inject their own creativity into the installation. Local artist(s) are preferred.
