Harrison Park Public Art Project
Harrison Park Public Art Project RFQ
The Harrison West Society, in partnership with the city of Columbus Public Art Program seeks to commission a professional visual artist to create, fabricate and install a fifth site-specific public artwork in Harrison Park.
The Public Art Committee of the Harrison West Society requests qualifications from professional visual artists who live or work in the state of Ohio. An Artist Advisory Panel seated by the Harrison West Society and approved by the Columbus Art Commission (CAC) will select three artist finalists to prepare proposals.
Twenty-one artists applied for the Harrison Park Public Art Project in a highly competitive process. The selection panel recommended that artists Jon Barlow Hudson, Xan Palay, and Todd Kime create proposals for the Harrison Park Public Art Project.
The community review and voting for the finalist will take place July 25, 2015.
