The City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program, through the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE), announces a two-stage selection process by which we will award and commission a site-specific artwork on the new 11.5-acre park at Penn’s Landing. This commission is part of the $225 million construction project undertaken by the Delaware River Waterfront (DRWC), the City of Philadelphia Government and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
ELIGIBILITY: Professional artists and teams over 18 living in the United States
DEADLINE: January 4, 2021
The Percent for Art Program and DRWC seek to commission a high quality, original, and site-specific sculptural public artwork that is integrated with the site’s design. The artwork has the opportunity to be integral to the design of the park’s features such as walks, low walls, shade
structures at the garden or stage, or seating terraces and elements. This integration could help tell the many stories – historic, present and future – that make up the site’s past and the park’s potential to speak to all Philadelphians and visitors, with meaning, inclusivity and thoughtfulness. The artwork could also be a singular grand sculptural element. The artwork should inspire interaction and creative use of the park’s features and places.
The selection process will take place in two stages.
