The City of Norfolk, Virginia seeks to commission an artist to
design and create artwork for Wards Corner.
Revitalization of the once bustling Wards Corner shopping area is now underway. What was once known as the
“Times Square of the South,” is being refurbished with a vibrant new mix of retail, entertainment and local services.
The Wards Corner Public Art Planning Committee seeks an artist to design and create artwork that is friendly and inviting and will cause viewers to pause and reflect. The committee hopes the final artwork will unify and mark a cohesive neighborhood that honors
its history with a new playful point of view. The final artwork should be eye-catching,
unique and bring color, fun and vibrancy to this urban threshold.
Budget: up to $150,000
Deadline for Submission: 2:00 PM EST, October 31, 2013
