Walk of the Heroines: Portland State University

Deadline: Friday, March 24, 2006

The Regional Arts & Culture Council in Portland is seeking artists/teams residing in the United States for three public art opportunities for Portland State University's Walk of the Heroines. The total art budget is $155,000. The three opportunities for public art are: a Stage Wall ($65K), Water Course Sculpture ($75K), 5 small wall niches ($15K). The artwork should reflect the themes of inspiration, education, discovery, artistic expression, diversity and community which have been woven throughout the project since its inception. Artists/teams may apply for one or all of the opportunities. While it is not required, the committee encourages teams of artists to apply for the entire site and supports the inclusion of emerging artists on those teams.
