$500 - $3,000
Creative Greensboro is accepting applications for the 2024-25 Downtown Arts program, which showcases local visual artists at locations around downtown Greensboro. Selected artists will be paid and one will be chosen to create an original work. The deadline to apply is December 5. Apply here.
Ten artists will be chosen for the Art on Downtown Kiosks program, each receiving a $500 honorarium and up to 10 weeks of display time on the 11 digital kiosks located throughout downtown Greensboro. The artists are also featured on Creative Greensboro’s website and social media.
One artist will be selected to create an original work for the Art in City Hall special commission. This artist will receive $3,000 to create an original piece that will become part of the city’s permanent collection and be displayed in city facilities. The commissioned work will also be reproduced onto vinyl, framed, and installed in a prominent location at the Melvin Municipal Office Building (MMOB), also known as City Hall.
A 10-by-20-foot reproduction of “Our Collective Table,” a mixed media piece by 2023-24 special commission artist Bevelyn Afor Ukah, is currently on display in the MMOB. (Pictured.)
Applicants must be Greensboro residents with a practice in painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, glass, photography, digital arts, or fiber arts. A selection committee comprised of Greensboro Cultural Affairs Commission members and city marketing and communication staff will review all eligible submissions to choose the 10 artists and artworks. Selected works and the commissioned piece will be displayed through early 2025.
