NEORSD has partnered with LAND studio (LAND) and the Trust for Public Land (TPL) to provide opportunities for artists and designers to create new works of public art that respond to NEORSD’s environmental goals, beautify construction sites, create amenities when construction is completed, and provide information to residents, ratepayers, and others.
Because NEORSD is working on a number of projects across its service area, the depth and scope of these public art projects are anticipated to vary, depending on location, visibility, accessibility, and other factors.
NEORSD anticipates completing several public art projects each year. Project timelines, adjacent stakeholders, and physical landscape are among some of the many variables that will be different for each project.
Submission Requirements and Selection Process
Artists, designers, and teams are asked to submit a digital portfolio of work samples. Links to websites will also be accepted, so long as contact information is clear in the submission.
In addition to submitting a digital portfolio, individuals or teams submitting proposals must include a statement of interest, in which they share why they are interested in participating in creating artwork for Project Clean Lake.
It is expected that for all upcoming projects, potential artists would be contacted by LAND or Trust for Public Land staff. Site visits, budgets, expected community outreach, and other project-specific information will be shared with artists on a project-by-project basis.
Confirmation of submissions will be sent by LAND to all artists who share materials. Artists will be notified separately if they are being considered for a future art project within this program.
NEORSD, LAND, and TPL reserve the rights to waive submission requirements, to change this application process if necessary, not move forward with any applicants, delay or cancel the installation of any project, and or other unforeseen circumstances. An application for this project is not considered an application for any future projects with LAND, TPL, NEORSD, or other agencies beyond Project Clean Lake.
To be considered for this project, artists/designers/teams must submit their materials to jwimbiscus@LAND-Studio.org by 5:00pm EST on March 29, 2019. Questions regarding the application process can be directed to Joel Wimbiscus at the email address above or by calling 216-621-5413 x114.
