Artists and artist teams are invited to submit qualifications, and up to three selected finalist / finalist teams will each receive a $200 stipend to submit a proposal.  

SPECIFICATIONS: The entryway should include a 5-6 foot tall gate and an 8 foot tall arbor, connect to bronze-finish aluminum fence sections (to be installed), and accommodate foot traffic, wheelchairs, and strollers. See photos below. 


DEADLINE: 5 p.m. Thursday, June 30

ELIGIBILITY: Artists must live within 40 miles of Chapel Hill and submit application materials using the directions below.
