On behalf of the Town of Riverdale Park, the Hyattsville CDC is announcing a Call for Artists for the Riverdale Park Public Art Initiative. The Initiative seeks five (5) sculptures of various styles and sizes to display for a one year-long placement, at pre-determined, publicly-accessible sites within the Town of Riverdale Park. As part of The Town’s plan to create an engaging, publicly accessible outdoor sculpture gallery across its many neighborhoods, we seek site-appropriate sculptural work fitting of each chosen location. All sites have an existing installed concrete footer/pad, specifically designed to accommodate a range of sizes of work and a variety of bases.
Submittals may be of any durable, easily-maintained, exposure-ready media, and, due to the planned temporary nature of the initiative’s installations should be of existing or nearly completed work. Following a jurying process, the works will be installed by the selected artist for a year-long exhibition. At the end of the exhibition term, the works will also be made available for purchase through the Riverdale Park Public Art Initiative website at https://hycdc.org/rppai .*
Artists across the greater metropolitan region are welcome to apply, especially those who live or have studios within Prince George’s County.
Local established and emerging sculptors, woodworkers, metalworkers, and artists of any durable media are welcomed.
At this issuance, the stipend for selection in this Call is $2,000 per selected work, to include all artist fees, costs for installation, documentation of the installed work, transportation, and insurance.
