The City of Denver’s Public Art Program seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create an original public artwork, or series of artworks, for the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library located at 2401 Welton St., in the Five Points neighborhood of Denver. The selection panel has identified several interior locations on Level One of the library for potential art opportunities and will select one artist or artist team for the allocated total budget of approximately $20,000 USD.

The panel is very invested in cultural diversity, local history and community representation, and desires to create a space that is inclusive, accessible and welcoming to all. The panel hopes to see artwork(s) that reflect the rich cultures of the area. The panel would also like to see artwork(s) that celebrate the history, present and future of the area. This library is one of very few of its kind in the country and works should connect to the mission and goals of the institution. Artists should also consider the existing artworks in the library and are encouraged to utilize the vast collections housed within the library for source material for the new work(s).

Eligibility: Open to artists or artist teams residing in the state of Colorado
DEADLINE: Monday, August 30, 2021, 11:59 pm MST
