Dublin Arts Council has issued a call seeking to commission an artist and/or artist team to create a site specific permanent public artwork installation in Dublin, Ohio’s Muirfield Village, a planned community on the northern outskirts of the city with 250-acres of common ground with trees, shrubs, flowers, open vistas, and natural wooded areas, including 29 miles of shared-use paved pathways. The site is located on the corner of Muirfield Drive and Whittingham Drive. The artwork will be the latest large-scale permanent artwork of the Dublin Art in Public Places program, which was begun in 1988.
The call is open to all professional artists who are U.S. citizens and live and work in the United States. Artist teams will be considered, but only a single artist project manager will be contracted. A $175,000 all-inclusive contract will include design of an original artwork, management of fabrication and installation of the work and availability for a public reception, community engagement opportunities, media interviews and other promotional events. Dublin’s Art in Public Places Program is community-driven. Dublin Arts Council will collaborate with the City of Dublin, the Muirfield Village Homeowners Association, artists and members of the community to award the commission.
Applications must be submitted to www.callforentry.org by WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2023 at 11:59:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time for consideration.
The goal of the Art in Public Places program is to enhance the quality of life for Dublin’s residents and to strengthen the city as a destination for visitors. Dublin Arts Council maintains that public art should inspire an emotional response, provoke questions and invite interaction, while encouraging ingenuity and creative discovery by artists. The award-winning collection of public artworks distinguishes the Dublin community and creates a sense of place while contributing to Dublin’s aesthetic legacy.
