Calling Triangle Area Artists

We’re looking for a Triangle-based artist or artist team to design and realize artwork for 140 West Plaza in downtown Chapel Hill that celebrates LGBTQ+ Pride and activates 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 LGBTQ+ community are strongly encouraged to apply.

Interested? Apply now.

  • We’ll select up to three finalists to produce proposals and we’ll pay each artist $100 for this work.
  • The selection team will choose one proposal for realization.

STIPEND: $4,500
(includes design, fabrication, install, and deinstall)

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

DEADLINE: 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 20
