Call To Artist for Penn Center Documentation


Thursday, March 3, 2016

DC Department of General Services - Sustainability + Energy Division (DGS-SE) is issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to engage individual artists and artistic teams (“Artist”) to respond to this Call for Artists for the development a new, original permanent work of art at the Penn Center (326 R Street NE, Washington DC 20002).
 
Cities tell stories with the trails and footpaths that meander through them.
 
These urban-scaled arteries are worn with the stories of those who traverse them: connecting the past, present, and the future of this complex and always changing urban landscape; connecting neighborhoods and the spaces in between; connecting their residents and visitors, and inviting them to be active.
 
Trails invite discovery. Trails invite wanderlust. Trails are alive. They tell a story we’re eager to celebrate.
 
DGS-SE envisions a mural or other work of art as the voice for that celebration -- as a beacon.
