Jeffersonville seeks artists for projects

JEFFERSONVILLE —

The Jeffersonville Public Art Committee has issued a request for qualifications for artists to complete several art projects in the city.

The qualified artist will initiate the city’s public art program, for which a budget will be established based on the response received from the request for qualifications. There are three types of projects the city’s public art committee is considering.

The projects are: functional/integrated works such as artistic bike racks, benches, shelters and other related art pieces that provide a practical function to public spaces. These works are primarily needed in historic downtown, but they could be considered in other parts of the city; murals for Jeffersonville’s floodwall. The floodwall already has several existing murals on it and the public and city officials have expressed interest in having additional murals created on the wall; a third project being considered is gateways for the city. The public art committee would like to see art integrated into areas outside the downtown in one or more gateways.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 5 p.m. Saturday, June 1. For more information visit the city’s website at cityofjeff.net; or contact Director of Planning and Zoning Shane Corbin at scorbin@cityofjeff.net or 812-280-4712.
