We are pleased to announce that we have issued an RFQ for a brand new piece of public art in the DCP!
Durham Central Park, Inc., Liberty Warehouse Apartments and the City of Durham, NC Government North Carolina General Services Department in collaboration with the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, Durham Parks and Recreation and the Durham Cultural Advisory Board’s Public Art Committee, invite qualified artists or artist teams to submit qualifications to design, fabricate, and install signature public art on the Liberty Warehouse Wall in Durham Central Park.
Location: Durham Central Park
Site Info: The site of the proposed art wall is a newly constructed brick wall that forms the northeastern boundary of the park and encloses the neighboring Liberty Warehouse Apartments. The brick wall is composed of 5 panels that are interrupted by brick pilasters. On average, the wall height measures approximately 11 feet tall. It totals approximately 110 feet in length. The wall is composed of a concrete masonry unit (CMU) with a brick veneer. The use of the entire wall length (5 panels) is not required, but a competitive submission will preferably activate at least 3 panels. In addition, submissions are allowed but not required to project out onto the ground plane a maximum of 15 feet from the wall.
Project budget: $50,000
