Public Art Chattanooga Accepting Requests For Proposals For Art On Main

Deadline To Submit Is Oct. 31

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Public Art Chattanooga announced last month a call for purchases for its permanent collection on Main Street. The deadline for applications is Oct. 31.

PAC is seeking to purchase up to three sculptures from artists for permanent inclusion in the Art on Main program. This Request for Proposals will conclude the Art on Main program, after adding up to three new acquisitions that will be chosen for select sites along East and West Main Streets.

Art on Main began in 2007 as a biennial temporary rotating exhibition of outdoor sculptures placed along the sidewalks of Main Street in downtown Chattanooga’s urban core and burgeoning art district. Since 2007, Public Art Chattanooga has exhibited over 20 works and has been able to build a permanent collection through purchases from this exhibit.

This program is made possible from a generous grant from the Lyndhurst Foundation.

Pollution For Profit?
