Five Mile neighborhood roundabout call for art
The Five Mile Neighborhood Council is seeking proposals for a public art project at the roundabout located on Five Mile and Strong roads. This is an opportunity for an artist or artist team to create public art in the Five Mile Community that will define the Five Mile Prairie by embracing the diversity and heritage of the area. Artists are invited to submit proposals for artwork appropriate to the location that will be sited with the existing columnar basalt and landscaping. Proposals may include either the creation of new work OR the sale of an existing sculpture if it fit the project goals and site requirements.
