CdA Arts Commission seeks Artists for “ArtCurrents”

The City of Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission is seeking artists to participate in its “ArtCurrents” program.    Artists submit applications for placement of their sculptures around downtown Coeur d’Alene and Riverstone for a period of one (1) year.  The displayed works will also be offered for sale, with the City of Coeur d’Alene receiving a 25% commission from the sale. 

The selected artists or artists teams will be paid a stipend of $1,000 after receipt of the artwork.  ArtCurrents pieces are displayed along Sherman Avenue, Lakeside Avenue, City Park, and the Riverstone area.

Public art can be a change agent for the community.  It creates and enhances neighborhood and community identity.  It enhances the visual landscape and character of the city.  It turns ordinary spaces into community landmarks and promotes community dialogue and, most importantly, it’s accessible to everyone.  

Information packets are available at City Hall, 710 E. Mullan Avenue, or by clicking HERE.  Artist proposals are due by 5:00 p.m., July 1, 2019.  Installation of the artwork will begin in October. 

Artists who are interested in participating are encouraged to contact Amy Ferguson, Arts Commission staff support, at amyf@cdaid.org, with any questions.
