Women’s Art Initiative, Rock Hill, SC is a public art advocacy group whose mission is to enhance quality of life for the community by reflecting its cultural values and artistic vitality through public art. WAI is seeking proposals from artists/designers to create a contemporary, outdoor design feature, sculpture, or artwork at the entry of Comporium’s Telephone Museum on Elk Avenue. It will serve to celebrate communication and technology; specifically its multi-level history in Rock Hill and its endless possibilities for innovation. It will provide opportunities for dialogue emphasizing the impact of technology and communication on our future. The piece must be child/family friendly and ideally have an interactive or kinetic feature. WAI will select one proposal whose vision incorporates these themes. The artist/designer is responsible for the design, creation, transportation, and installation of the project and will work with WAI’s Selection Committee and the City of Rock Hill.
