The City of Cleveland, through its Public Art Program, is seeking expressions of interest from artists interested in creating artwork that would be digitally applied to traffic signal controller cabinets along Clark Avenue, between West 41st Street and Quigley Road. WHAT IS THE PUBLIC ART PROGRAM? The City of Cleveland’s Public Art Program, established in 2003, requires that certain major capital projects undertaken by the city provide an amount equal to 1.5% of the overall project budget for public art. The program requires that artworks produced through the program be in proximity to the improvements that generated the funding for the works. PROJECT DETAILS The City of Cleveland, through its Public Art Program, is seeking artists interested in creating public art to accompany streetscape improvements planned for Clark Avenue, between West 41st Street and Quigley Road. The artwork will be digitally reproduced and placed on wraps that will be directly applied to seven traffic signal controller cabinets along the street. In most cases, artwork will cover all or part of all four sides of each cabinet. Rather than submit pre-conceived proposals, the selected artist or artists will work with city and LAND studio staff and people representing the neighborhoods in the project area to develop artwork related to and reflective of the street and its surrounding neighborhoods. Willingness to work with neighborhood representatives is essential. The artist or artists will be paid to produce designs and will not be responsible for fabrication or installation of the wraps on the traffic signal controller cabinets.
