The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with Renew Atlanta, invites metro Atlanta-based artists and artist teams to submit qualifications (resume/CVs) for a site-specific sculpture.

The new installation will reside in Atlanta’s revered westside, home to some of the world’s most respected civil rights leaders including W.E.B. DuBois, Booker T. Washington, and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

The proposed artwork should reflect the civic and cultural significance of this area while helping to beautify the western entry point of the MLK Corridor at the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive SW and Interstate 285 (I-285). 

The artwork will be installed in the southeastern triangular landscape area of Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive SW, near the I-285 North exit ramp.

For additional information and qualification requirements, visit our full Call-for-Entry listed on CAFÉ or download the RFP here.

Only locally based, metro Atlanta artists or artist teams will be considered for this project. The deadline to submit a proposal is January 1, 2019.
