Submission Deadline: Monday, October 21, 2019

The Arlington Arts Center (AAC), in partnership with the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia (CFNOVA), invites artists based in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, to submit a proposal for a temporary public art project to be installed on AAC’s front lawn during the spring of 2020.

Project Goals and Expectations
AAC and the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia are seeking a project that engages the community and is accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. The work should offer opportunities for interactivity and public engagement, whether through direct interaction with the work itself; through public programs to activate the work while it is on view; and/or through community involvement in the production of the work. AAC and CFNOVA encourage interested artists to consider the environmental impact of their proposal and avoid the use of environmentally damaging materials, including Styrofoam or spray paint.

Project Timeline
AAC and the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia anticipate installing in March or April of 2020 and keeping the project up for three to six months. The final timeline will be developed in conversation with the selected artist.
