Brief Description

The City of Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department in partnership with the Virginia Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau seek to commission a professional artist to create a series of site‐specific exterior sculptures to be placed on the grounds of the new Virginia Beach Sports Center. The City is looking to commission a series of sculptural installations at four (4) designated sites along the 17th Street and Jefferson Avenue sides of the new complex. The City is asking applying artists or artist teams to consider two installation options. The City is looking to commission pieces that are family friendly, exciting “selfie” moments that engage visitors and locals alike looking for a unique experience as well as work that transitions from day to night. Artwork designs should not be limited to reflecting the human form and athleticism, may be non-representative, but expressive with fluid movement while capturing the excitement seen when viewing a sporting event.
