DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 10, 2012
Charlotte Street Foundation, in collaboration with City Center Square, seeks proposals from artists interested in being considered for a window installation commission. The commissioned work will occupy a large ground-floor window niche at City Center Square, located on the north side of the street just west of 12th and Main in downtown Kansas City.
In connection with the United States Post Office located within City Center Square, the installation should engage the theme of mail or the post office in some manner. The selected artist will be awarded a materials budget of $500 and an artist stipend of $500 to support the creation of the final project. Creative, innovative, artistic approaches are encouraged.
The selected artist will be notified in September, and the installation should be completed by no later than early November. The completed installation will remain on view for approximately one year. The window dimensions are approximately 22 feel long; 3 feet deep; 14 feet tall and should be considered in relation to proposals. Access into the window space is via a ladder and opening of limited space.
