On behalf of a public art initiative for the city of Warrensburg, Missouri, the Warrensburg Arts Commission (WAC) seeks a two-dimensional design for a 10-foot diameter etched concrete circle that will be permanently installed in the sidewalk on Pine Street in historic downtown Warrensburg.
During the last ten years, almost one million dollars has been invested to improve the aesthetics and infrastructure in Warrensburg’s downtown district. Improvements include the street surfaces; new 8’ wide concrete sidewalks with 2’ wide brick pavers on the outside edge of the sidewalks; and upgraded electrical, sewer, storm water, landscaping, signage, water, gas, cable, and phone services.
In the center of the Arts and Entertainment District of Pine Street in downtown Warrensburg, a 10-foot diameter concrete circle will be laid in the sidewalk on the north side of Pine Street. A professional concrete etching company will reproduce the winning design on the circle. Please see the architectural rendering of the site on our Facebook page.
There is no pre-determined theme for artwork, but WAC suggests that the content reflect the vibrancy of downtown, the beauty of the region, and the energy of the Arts and Entertainment District. Whether your design is abstract or representational, we encourage you to create a design unaccompanied by a dog, bomber, or mule. Please see a selection of example images on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/groups/504736136206326) or at www.burgarts.com.
An honorarium of $500 will be awarded for the chosen design. WAC and the City of Warrensburg shall also have the option of making no selection. In this event, a new selection process may be initiated or the project abandoned. The award funds are made available through the WAC and the City of Warrensburg.
The design for the circle becomes property of the City of Warrensburg. The artist shall retain copyright to the work and will grant WAC and the City of Warrensburg a license to display the work and create and distribute reproductions of the work, including digital and photographic images for archival and promotional purposes.
This is an open competition for non-professional and professional artists. There is no entry fee to submit your work. A team of artists is welcome to apply, and multiple applications are allowed. The Warrensburg Arts Commission and the City of Warrensburg selected design will be based on creativity, appropriateness, and practicality for implementation.

The Carnegie Center for Art & History and the New Albany Urban Enterprise Association are accepting proposals from artists for the 2013 New Albany Public Art Project: Bicentennial Series. The submission deadline is January 3, 2013!
Each selected artist or artist team will receive an honorarium of $4,000. Three artists or teams will be selected from the proposals to create outdoor artworks that will be installed in the Spring of 2013 to remain on view for two years.
Each selected artwork will interpret one of the following historic themes: Clubs & Organizations, Culinary Arts, Museums & History, Performing Arts & Entertainment or Visual Arts & Artists. Attention must be paid to this aspect of the project, as interpretation of the chosen theme and historical appropriateness will be a factor in the selection process. While artists must interpret the theme in a way that is accurate to that history, we are not looking for literal displays of the theme, but rather unique and innovative interpretations of one or more aspects of the theme.
Full details and images relating to these themes can be found on the project website: www.napublicart.org
and additional images are on the project Facebook page: www.facebook.com/napublicart
