The Convention and Visitors Bureau of Greater Cleveland, dba Destination Cleveland, and LAND studio are seeking artists interested in designing and producing three-dimensional viewing platforms for Sit and See #Cle. The project series will create a collection of places where Clevelanders and visitors can sit (or stand) and take in views along Cleveland’s trail system and possibly get a new perspective. The first series of installations will be located along the recently opened section of the Cleveland Lakefront Bikeway, between West 28th Street and West Boulevard. The viewing platform artworks could take any form that would allow trail users to pause and take in any of the interesting, expansive, and often unusual views of the city and Lake Erie afforded by the trail. Beyond their practical function, Sit and See #CLE artworks should be designed to be sculpturally engaging and to add visual interest to the trail. They could also serve as landmarks and orientation devices, though they would not be required to do so. Special consideration will be provided to artworks that incorporate universal design concepts. Chosen artists will be expected to produce drawings to a standard that could be reviewed and stamped by a structural engineer. Please visit land-studio.org/media/competitions for more information. Questions should be directed to Vince Reddy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-621-5413 x107.
