Urban Parks Art Grant
As part of our efforts to build a richer, more inviting and livable urban core, we’re excited to introduce the Urban Parks Art Grant, a new program that will showcase the work of urban artists in two of downtown’s most popular parks – Occidental Square and Westlake Park. We want your ideas for creative, innovative projects, so we’re holding open requests for proposals twice yearly.
The center city is a tapestry of neighborhoods, people, ideas and culture. And through the Urban Parks Art Grant, we want to reflect our multifaceted downtown community – both in the projects we select and the artists we partner with.
Our current open call is Sept. 1–Oct. 31, 2018. The selected artists will be notified by Nov. 30. Selections are made by a panel of art and design professionals, as well as DSA and City staff members. The group will review applicants’ images, qualifications and other materials.
To support our mission of creating a healthy, vibrant downtown, download the application below and submit a proposal.
Working with Artists
Downtown is filled with opportunities for creative enhancement, and we’re always on the lookout for experienced artists who want to help transform public spaces into canvasses of expression. Urban art can help create a sense of place and community. It’s proven to foster innovation and it’s accessible to everyone – workers, residents and visitors. If you love downtown and have a creative vision to bring to life, we want to hear from you. We welcome large-scale installations, small projects and all types in between.Contact Us
Calls for Walls
Calling all building owners! DSA is looking for partners to help bring more art into downtown and create a richer urban experience. And the wall of your building might be the perfect canvas for our next colorful mural. If you are interested in vibrant neighborhood enhancements and know a wall that could use some pizzaz, contact us today.Contact Us
