The City of Philadelphia Division of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is seeking artists or artist teams to create public artworks in the areas in and around several SEPTA Regional Rail line underpasses in the North Central Choice Neighborhood in North Philadelphia. The artworks are part of a major, multifaceted investment in physical, community and economic activities in the area of the Norris Apartments, a historic public housing development that is being redeveloped as part of the North Central Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant. The artworks will largely be executed as large-scale murals due to the limitations of using other materials in these particular locations. The development of the artwork concepts and the creation of the artworks should involve engagement with local residents, including a community advisory committee.
