The City of Cedar Rapids, Iowa is requesting proposals for a public art installation to be located in the City of Cedar Rapids Convention Center and U.S. Cellular Center Complex. An enclosed glass room that protrudes over 1st Avenue NE, commonly referred to as “the Lantern,” has been selected by the City as the future location of a high-profile work of public art that will enhance the vitality and identity of the community, thereby improving the quality of life of those who live in or visit Cedar Rapids. The Lantern serves as the downtown view terminus to our community’s “main street,” 3rd Street SE, and thus is one of the most visible sites in Cedar Rapids.
