Denver Public Art calls for qualified artists for new 39th Avenue Greenway and Open Channel project

Entries due by Monday, November 12, 11:59pm Denver time

dpaDenver's Public Art Program, now in its 30th year, seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create multiple artworks for the 39th Avenue Greenway and Open Channel Public Art Project.

Applications will be accepted at through Monday, Nov. 12, 11:59 p.m. The budget for this project is $400,000 and the commission is open to all local, national or international artists.

The selection panel is seeking one-of-a-kind two- and three-dimensional artwork(s) in any media, materials and formats including interactive art, environmental art, sound art and/or landscape art. The artwork will be located in the new 12-acre recreational greenway between Franklin and Steele streets which will serve as a safe community gathering space as well as reduce flood risks to nearby homes and businesses.

The artwork should celebrate the Clayton and Cole neighborhoods and help instill a sense of continuity throughout the Greenway by providing a progression or a narrative to unify the public spaces.
