Submissions Being Accepted For Quilted Public Art Project

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Public Art Chattanooga and the Chattanooga Convention and Visitor’s Bureau are seeking proposals for original, two-dimensional designs that will be printed and installed on multiple sidewalks throughout downtown Chattanooga. Three designs will be selected for production and installed for up to six months beginning in September.  

In September, the American Quilter’s Society will celebrate their 30th anniversary during Quilt Week in Chattanooga. Thousands of quilters from across the country will be in attendance, bringing visitorship and economic impact to the region. To celebrate the art of quilting during the convention, PAC will blanket the downtown with original, colorful and dynamic patterns that will function as a wayfinder, a placemaker and as public art, said officials. The deadline for submissions is July 31. 

Public Art Chattanooga is the city of Chattanooga's public art program and is housed in the department of Economic and Community Development. Public Art Chattanooga introduces a wide range of public art into the community, enhancing the civic environment and enriching the lives of residents and visitors, said officials.  

Public Art Chattanooga manages a collection of over 100 permanent and 20 temporary works of art that are placed throughout the city. These collections and programs are supported by city funds and significant funds from private sources.
