Artists Invited to Submit Proposals
for Artwork in Bentonville’s Train Station Park
Bentonville, AR, September 18, 2015…..The Bentonville Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) and Visit Bentonville are issuing a Call for Proposals for artwork to be displayed in Train Station Park.
The park is on a flat lot with a small gazebo, internal trails with benches and landscaping. It is located in downtown Bentonville adjacent to a historic train station, across from the Bentonville Public Library and adjacent to a 60 unit multifamily housing unit. It is located in the recently deemed Arts District and along the Downtown Trail that connects to the Razorback Regional Greenway, a 32-mile linear trail.
Proposals for artwork that engage the history of Bentonville, reflect the culture of the train station and/or the experience of the library are encouraged, but not required. Proposed artwork should enhance and augment the public’s experience of the park, adjacent trail and public library. Proposals may be for artworks in any medium suitable to unprotected outdoor conditions and proposed artworks must demonstrate the ability to withstand these conditions for extended outdoor display.
Details and proposal requirements are available on the City of Bentonville website, http://www.bentonvillear.com/departments/planning-department/boards-commissions/public-arts-advisory-committee. To receive a digital copy, contact Shelli Kerr at email@example.com or (479)271-6826.
