The Denver Office of Cultural Affairs (DOCA) seeks to commission one or more artists (or teams of artists) to create site-specific artwork to enhance and activate a one-mile stretch of streetscape along 14th Street, in downtown Denver, CO. This stretch, from Market Street to Colfax Avenue, will become a primary pedestrian zone connecting Lower Downtown (LoDo), the Denver Theatre District, and the Golden Triangle cultural district and Civic Center.
Plans are underway to widen the sidewalks on the north side of the street and encourage more restaurants, entertainment and retail along the street. Street improvements such as benches, planters, new signage, lighting and traffic controls are included in the scope of this project. Ultimately, these improvements will encourage a lively and activated pedestrian destination, and the artwork should complement and augment these efforts.
The budget for this project is approximately $180,000.
Applications must be submitted on www.callforentry.org by 5:00 pm on March 26, 2010.
