The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Art Commission has sent out a request for bids seeking an artist or team of artists to repair and restore the “Memory Wall of Peace and Love” on Trade Street behind the Clark Campbell Transportation Center.

Artist Gregory Warmack created the wall in 1999 by covering most of the wall’s surface with cement and embedding hundreds of objects, keepsakes and artifacts donated by local citizens. The top of the wall included a series of hand-made concrete sculptures of birds and figures. The wall is 50 feet long and four feet high. 

Since it was created more than 20 years ago, the wall has deteriorated and been vandalized. Some sculptural elements have crumbled or been removed.

This competition is open to professional artists over 18 years old residing in the United States. 

Bids are due no later than Sept. 25. Complete information about the wall, including photographs, the scope of work, bid requirements and submission guidelines, is posted at CityofWS.org/PublicArt.
