The Railyard Art Committee seeks self-funded public art and performance projects for temporary installation in the Railyard Park + Plaza.
Community Artists, Designers and Innovators:
The Railyard Art Committee (RAC) invites both individuals and creative teams to propose visual and performing art projects that are vital, lively and experimental for temporary installation within the Railyard Park + Plaza.
We welcome thoughtful, challenging, playful, innovative, and edifying art in the context of social, cultural expression and environmental sustainability. Such issues may include ––but are not limited to ––cultural heritage, site history, ecological restoration, and the building of a sustainable future. Most importantly, projects should emphasize community engagement, enjoyment and participation.
The Railyard Park + Plaza was designed as a Cohesive Urban Art Environment and is a work of art in itself. RAC encourages a continuation of the collaborative spirit that remains at it’s core. Joint efforts across disciplines — artists, designers, scientists, historians, hydrologists, and many more — will be welcomed interactions with the original design.
All applications for installations, artworks and performances of a temporary nature that comply with the usage policies of the Railyard Park + Plaza are welcome. A limited number of honoraria, up to $500, are available for exemplary projects.
Artists should select an eligible, open-space area of the Railyard appropriate to their projects and describe the project in detail. Click HERE for the link to map of Railyard Art Locations.
RAC is a volunteer group that selects temporary art projects in the Railyard and reviews it for inclusion in the Public Art Program. Current members of the committee:
