Public Art Rosenwald

Call for Artists

Public Art Rosenwald

archi-treasures is looking for a creative professional to collaborate with residents of Bronzeville to develop site specific public art projects as part of the revitalization of the historic Rosenwald Courts Apartments, located between 46th and 47th Streets, and between Michigan and Wabash Avenues in Chicago, Illinois.
Vision and Goals
This project will result in the installation of permanent, site specific artwork at Rosenwald Courts. The artwork will:
• Reflect the rich history of the Michigan Boulevard Garden Apartments (aka “the Rosenwald”) and its role in the Great Migration of African Americans to Chicago from the South
• Engage current residents and neighbors in the conceptualization, design and/or production of the artwork in order to build a sense of connection and stewardship of this landmarked, culturally significant development
• Contribute to the identity of Rosenwald Courts as a cultural anchor in a revitalizing Bronzeville, embracing both the past and future of this community
DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF APPLICATIONS:
June 24, 2016
