Indy Parks and Recreation and project team members, Green3 Studio, V3 and Groundwork Indy, are requesting proposals from artists or artist teams who are interested in creating temporary outdoor public artwork to be included in this early phase of activating the site and design development for an adventure park at Riverside Park in Indianapolis, Indiana.
BUDGET: $5,000 per installation (all inclusive)
ELIGIBILITY: Professional artists over 18 living in the United States (artists living within 300 mile of Indianapolis will be given preference)
DEADLINE: Monday, August 3, at 11:59 p.m.
In 2017 Indy Parks completed a master plan for the 800-acre Riverside Regional Park, which will guide the development of the park over the next 20 years. While the plan will have a long lifespan, there will be projects identified that can allow improvements to begin as soon as possible. Indy Parks is ready to begin a project which is focused on furthering the transformation of the former Riverside Golf Course into an adventure park at Riverside Park. This 200-acre section of the Riverside Park is located within the area of White River Pkwy to the east, Cold Spring Road to the west, I-65 on the north, and 30th Street on the south. This project will be an opportunity to transform this area from a single use into a park that serves a larger community with a wide variety of activities and uses.
Applicants are highly encouraged to visit the location and to learn about the history and context of the site and neighborhood. You can find out more by reviewing the Riverside Regional Park Master Plan.
The purpose of the temporary art installations is to demonstrate the potential of art on the site to the community during the conceptual design phase of the parks redesign process. Artworks will be on display free of charge to the public during park hours from September 12 – December 1, 2020. Unless artwork has been approved for a longer exhibition period, the artwork must be removed from the site beginning December 2, 2020.
The project timeline is strict and is as follows:
