Public Art Opportunity – Request for Qualifications
End of Massive Resistance, City of Norfolk, VA

The End of Massive Resistance Public Art Planning Committee seeks to hire an artist to design and build a commemoration that will tell the many layers of the story of the struggle for equal education. The final artwork should have an emotional impact, communicate a depth of feeling, meaning and human understanding of this time and history and courageously talk about what happened. We are not looking for detailed representation but want to clearly show the story and a real sense of the struggle for equal education. The selected artist will work closely with the community to understand the history, the changing race relations and what it means to Norfolk. We want an artist who can deeply engage with the project and work with the committee to introduce the piece to the public.
