The City of Fort Wayne and Artlink Contemporary Gallery are inviting local artists to submit design ideas for ten wooden benches that will be installed along the downtown riverfront. Designs will be accepted now through November 1, 2015 with winning artwork selected through a jury process. The entry fee is $15 and each winning design will earn the artist a $500 honorarium. Artists may submit one design proposal per entry.
The benches were previously used at Citilink bus stops and will serve as the canvas for artwork that pays tribute to the outdoors and to the community’s recent revitalization efforts. Experienced artists living in any of the 11 counties of northeast Indiana (Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley) are invited to submit designs by the deadline. Designs will be chosen by December 1, 2015 and will be revealed at the Kickstart Festival on May 14, 2016. The benches are expected to be installed by summer 2016.
