This project is commissioned by the Executive Office of the Mayor (EOM) in partnership with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) and the Marion Barry Commission.

Request for Proposals
Pursuant of a commemorative statue, the partnering entities request for Regional Artists or Artist Teams to develop a permanent public art installation in the form of a life-sized bronze statue in the likeness of the Honorable Marion S. Barry, to be sited at the John A. Wilson Building in March 2017. Alternatively, Artists and/or Artist Teams are encouraged to recommend an alternative interior or exterior site that is owned and operated by the District of Columbia Government for the permanent display of the bronze statue. Therefore, potential sites include, but are not limited to, the John A. Wilson Building, The Reeves Municipal Center, One Judiciary Square, etc.
