On behalf of the Town of Riverdale Park, the Hyattsville CDC just announced 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.

Artists across the greater metropolitan region are welcome to apply, especially those who live or have studios within Prince George’s County. Submitted designs must be original artwork, and selected artists will be paid a $2,000 honorarium. Call for Artist submissions are due by Monday, February 3, 2020.

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 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 .*

Eligibility: 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.

ARTIST HONORARIUM 

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.
