The Hyattsville CDC in partnership with the Town of Riverdale Park, Prince George’s Arts & Humanities Council, and the Department of the Environment invites proposals for the design and delivery of a distinctive permanent sculptural artwork to kick off the first installation of the Town of Riverdale Park’s newly instituted Public Art Initiative.
This effort is part of the ongoing Environmental Public Art Project series that the Prince George’s Arts & Humanities Council and the Department of the Environment conceived of and instituted. This proposal will incorporate and feature sustainable materials and promote environmental awareness in an original way.
The sculptural work will be sited at the J.D. Williams Professional Building in Riverdale Park, MD. Located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Route One and East-West Highway, this critically-themed work will emerge as both a landmark and a visionary testament to the values and goals of the Town and the County. Special thanks to project sponsors Councilmember Jonathan Ebbeler and the Riverdale Park Arts Council.
PROJECT BUDGET: a minimum of $20,000, to date. Fundraising is successfully ongoing.
ELIGIBILITY: Sculptors and Public Artists that live, work or have their studio in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
