The Richmond Public Art Program is looking for artists, designers and creative professionals for its Public Art and Urban Infrastructure Artist Roster.
The Public Art and Urban Infrastructure Artist Roster, previously known as the Art Wrap Roster, is a group of pre-qualified artists who can provide original artwork to a variety of areas in Richmond from April 2022 to April 2024.
According to the City of Richmond, creative professionals may have their works of art displayed as cabinet box art wraps, temporary construction hoarding, waste management containers and other temporary urban design and infrastructure-based installations in the public area.
"This artist roster ensures Richmond-based emerging and established artists, designers and other creative professionals are offered the chance to present their work in the public realm as such opportunities arise," said the Richmond Public Art Program in a statement.
"These artist projects support the 2019-2024 Richmond Arts Strategy in enabling partnerships, connections and collaboration among diverse organizations, sites and creative partners, and engage Richmond residents and visitors with creative experiences and artistic encounters in their daily life."
Creative professionals must either work or live in Richmond and if they are selected to be on the roster, a project budget range of $500 to $2,500 will be given.
The deadline to apply for the artist roster is March 21, 2022.
