Public Art Commission Seeking Designs for Large Downtown Sculpture

     The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Public Art Commission is soliciting proposed designs for a sculpture to be placed downtown at the corner of Fourth and Spruce streets. The sculpture’s theme should be “Arts and Innovation.” The commission is encouraging interactive designs and the sculpture should be at least 8 feet in height so that it is appropriately scaled for the space.
     In an effort to recruit local artists with creative design ideas who would like to break into the large-scale sculpture field, the commission is encouraging all interested artists to apply, regardless of their experience with sculpture.
     After an artist is chosen to design the sculpture, there will be a separate call for a fabricator to build the sculpture. The commission intends to pair the chosen artist with the chosen fabricator to build and install the sculpture.
     The project is being funded by the city of Winston-Salem and Grubb Properties. A budget of $7,000 has been allocated for artist-design fees. Fabrication, materials, insurance, storage, transportation and installation of the sculpture on site will be paid with a separate budget of $40,000. Grubb Properties will pay for and construct a base for the sculpture.
     This is a local competition open to artists over 18 years old residing in Winston-Salem. Proposals must be submitted by noon on Friday, Oct. 9. Three finalists will be selected for interviews in early November. Finalists will receive a $500 honorarium to pay for the time and labor associated with submitting a final proposal.
     More information about the call for designs, including the selection process, the selection committee members and specific requirements for submissions, is posted at CityofWS.org/PublicArt.
