Calling Triangle Area Artists

Community Arts & Culture and Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership are looking for a Triangle-based artist or artist team to design and realize impactful installation artwork for 140 West Franklin Plaza in downtown Chapel Hill. The piece should celebrate LGBTQIA+ Pride and activate the plaza during Chapel Hill’s Small Town Pride month this June. Possible media include sculpture, installation, projection, imagery on the ground plane, or something else entirely. The final artwork must be highly visible, celebratory, and have a safe, maintenance-free lifespan of one month.

Local artists who identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ community are strongly encouraged to apply.

STIPEND: $5,000 (includes design, fabrication, install, and deinstall)

ELIGIBILITY: Artists must be 18+ and live within a 40-mile radius of Chapel Hill.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Monday, April 15 at 5pm

Community Arts & Culture aims to inspire creativity and celebrate community for a better Chapel Hill. We value inclusion, experience, and understanding, and encourage proposals that reflect these values.
