The deadline for submitting a letter of interest for the Animating Infrastructure
funding opportunity is this Friday. The
program seeks proposals for projects that provide opportunities for artists to engage with community in the design and/or fabrication of permanent or temporary public art for an interior or exterior site that is accessible to the public. Grants of up to $15,000 are available.
The Council’s definition of infrastructure is broad and includes community facilities and services such as buildings, trails, water or sewer systems, roads, power systems, parks, and more. Functional components of infrastructure—such as sidewalks, railings, benches, walls, signs, stairs, and tree grates in the built and/or natural environment—have the potential for artistic enhancement that creates unique places where people want to live, work, visit, and play.
A small number of selected applicants who submit a letter of interest will be invited to develop a full proposal in January 2021.
Letter of Interest due December 18, 2020
