Call for Artists

Fitchburg is seeking to expand its identity as an arts and culture destination within the North Central MA region. A place for creatives and residents to learn, connect, engage and create economic opportunities through arts and culture. The City is seeking temporary art that will convey this to the public through an installation depicting the variety and diversity of art and artists in our Fitchburg community. This installation should also invite the public to think about what types of art they would like to see in their community. The temporary art created shall be three feet wide by nine feet long, (3’ x 9’), be installed on at least eight of the sixteen vertical brick columns of the façade and must be removable after 18 months without damage or alteration of the existing building. The selected artist will work with a local banner company identified by the City to manufacture and install the eight banners based on the above specifications. Banners shall be installed using masonry anchors attached in the mortar between bricks. Adding an interactive element such as a QR code linked to a survey or a more analog method inviting residents to share what art they would like to see is encouraged, but not required. Artists that include an interactive element will receive an extra point during submission scoring.
