Metro Arts Seeks Artists for Old Hickory Community Center


Old Hickory Community Center (Nashville, TN)
National Call to Artists

Call Summary

Metro Arts is issuing a national call to artists to design, fabricate and install an interior suspended permanent public artwork for the Old Hickory Community Center (OHCC) in Nashville, Tennessee. The new regional community center will replace the existing OHCC located at 1050 Donelson Avenue. The site is located along the Cumberland River in the historic Old Hickory Village, a planned industrial complex and community dating to 1918. The budget is $250,000.

Once selected for the project, the artist or artist team is expected to lead at least two (2) community engagements with residents and stakeholders. Community input will inform the artist’s proposed design for the public art. The artists are encouraged to read and find their connection to Metro Arts’ commitment to equity and use it to inform both their community engagement process and development of their work. After the design is approved, the selected artist will develop drawings, fabricate, and install the permanent public artwork at the Old Hickory Community Center prior to its targeted opening in Summer of 2024.


All submissions of qualifications must be submitted through the Metro Arts Submittable page by: Monday, March 6th, 2023 by 11:59 p.m.
