Norfolk Arts and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia (BGCSEVA) have received a grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies to create three art interventions, one in each of the three Norfolk Police Patrol Districts. The artwork will remake the streets, improve public safety, inspire people, draw in visitors, and enhance residents’ quality of life creating more vibrant streets for everyone.
We want to hire *one artist or artist team to develop and create asphalt art on Bland Street near Sewells Point Road in the Second Patrol Division. Bland Street is adjacent to an open space that will be the home of a future neighborhood park. For the past 6 years Norfolk police officers have engaged with BGCSEVA in the Cops And Kids Eating (CAKE) program. The selected artist will work with the Five Points community, Boys & Girls Club members, the police, and dance professionals to develop the street artwork design. The design should include elements that can be painted by the community during an art installation event scheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2020.
The artwork should be beautiful and meaningful and specific to the neighborhood to enrich the community, support the pedestrian experience and police relations. The design should take into consideration social distancing and allow for participants to paint and engage 6’ apart. The final design will be used as a location for police and the community to participate in street dancing and engage in art activities. Citizens will engage with the police and city staff to develop individual relationships, breakdown misperceptions and provide feedback about the hopes for their community and the new park.
