BUDGET: $60,000 Create public art for the Elizabeth River Trail & Chelsea District

View the PROSPECTUS  You can also find all the information you need to apply HERE!

Deadline: May 31, 2018

The committee would like to commission an artwork that speaks to the progressive, creative vibe of Chelsea. It could serve as a gateway, or point of transition between the trail and the neighborhood. Kinetic or multiple artworks that create a sense of motion or direction to visually move people through the space would also be appropriate.

PROJECT SITE: The committee is open to all artists’ ideas and will consider artwork along the pathways and/or as a signature gateway. There is a large grass park on the corner of Raleigh and Claremont Avenues that is another ideal location for artwork. Please see site map of the trail as is goes through Chelsea.

SIZE/MEDIUM: The artwork should be pedestrian scale but also large enough to attract attention. We like the idea of using recycled durable materials such as recycled beer bottles, shipyard or cannery materials, or other items that reference the neighborhood. Artwork must be durable and of permanent materials that will stand the test of time. Materials must be safe and easily maintained.
