CityCenter Danbury Sculpture Project
Commission Opportunity – SCULPTURE
Deadline to apply: April 28, 2023 (5:00 PM)
CityCenter Danbury works to make the area more attractive and accessible and we’re here to help.
The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and CityCenter Danbury request an Artist or Artist Team to design and install site-specific feature artwork(s) for 30 Crosby Street, Danbury, CT. Community engagement is a priority, as well as, forging strategic partnerships to assist the needs of the downtown property owners.
Up to three qualified finalists will be selected to develop and submit proposals and will receive $1000 stipend for their initial design proposals. The Artist with the final selected proposal will be awarded a contract of $30,000.
As harmony is one of the core pillars of CityCenter Danbury, the goal is to develop artwork that not only encourages an environment of unity and physical connection– creating a bridge for people to experience each other – but also to reflect on the timeless “child-like” feelings that reaches across boundaries, taps into a spirit of innocence, and inspires playfulness. Artists will be asked to create featured artwork within the theme of Childs Play: A sharing of Origins – to express the unifying attributes of art through the lens of a child for all ages.
