Temporary Public Art for Marine Industrial Park


At the request of Mayor Thomas M. Menino, the Boston Redevelopment Authority, in coordination with the Boston Art Commission, is seeking proposals for temporary public artworks to be considered for an 18-month installation to celebrate the innovative and ecological spirit that will define Boston’s Innovation District.These artworks will serve to engage the public and act as gateways for the Boston Marine Industrial Park (BMIP) and indicators of the Innovation District and its creative community. These temporary installations are the first step of a renewed effort to bring public art to the BMIP. Additional funding is being sought to support permanent installations through a community-wide public process.

Artists/designers/teams are now invited to forward a selection of up to three existing works and/or installation proposals for new work to be considered for this 18 month installation. There are three possible sites, artists can submit entries for one or more of the sites; however, final sitings will be determined by the selection committee. 

Deadline: March 14, 2011
Duration: 18 months
Eligibility: Open to all artists/designers/teams
Artist Selection Announced : Monday, March 28, 2011
