Public Art Sculpture Commission- England Airpark Roudabout, Alexandria, Louisiana.
England Airpark and Community, home to Alexandria International Airport, is seeking request for qualifications and preliminary proposals from individual artists or artists teams for the creation of a monumental gateway sculpture located in a site specific roundabout entrance to the Airpark. This site was specifically created for the installation of a public art centerpiece. This is a high visibility, high traffic opportunity with hundreds of thousands of vehicles utilizing the Airparks roundabout on an annual basis. The roundabout location is one of the most notable and prominent public spaces within the Central Louisiana community.
Public art is important to a community’s sense of place, art that represents a community’s defining past, present self-image and hopeful future. England Airpark is looking for innovative work that uses a unique space to honor valiant service and uplift the Airpark with public art.
