    Riverdale Park Public Art Initiative: September 29

    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, publically 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 year-long exhibition. At the end of the exhibition term, the works will also be made available for purchase through our forthcoming Riverdale Park Public Art Initiative website.* 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. 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.

    CALL FOR ARTISTS!! Apply by September 29, 2017

    Apply by September 29, 2017, 5:00pm The Hyattsville Community Development Corporation, on behalf of Landex Development, LLC, is accepting artist proposals for the design and fabrication of two (2) sculpturally-devised bus shelters for placement at two (2) revitalization sites on Rhode Island Avenue in the Prince George’s County Gateway Arts & Entertainment District. The project is privately funded and intended to engage the imagination of Gateway Arts District stakeholders. The Bus Shelter placements will be provided outside of the newly constructed Studio 3807 and Artisan at 4100 as a means of simultaneously enhancing and promoting transit use. Both properties host a Capital Bike Share Station. The placements are adjacent to the Gateway Arts Center.

    The first bus shelter will serve northbound commuters and is to be located at the northwest corner of the Studio 3807 site at 39th St, and calls for an iconic, contemporary, sculptural treatment for the bus shelter. The second placement calls for a similar structure for southbound commuters at Artisan at 4100, one block to the north. Installation for the first bus shelter is to be completed by March 26, 2018 to ensure delivery in advance of Studio 3807’s grand opening in Spring, 2018. The second bus shelter will be stored offsite once it is completed, to be installed December, 2018, ahead of Artisan at 4100’s grand opening in early Spring, 2019.
