Eligibility:

The Town of Ashland, Virginia seeks qualifications from artists/artist teams for a new large-scale public artwork to welcome residents and visitors to the entrance of our historic downtown. The site is highly visible as it serves as the primary entrance to downtown and is proximal to two major east coast roadways, Interstate 95 and US Route 1.

Ideal works of art would create an arch or archway effect to welcome visitors and provide passersby in vehicles safe viewing access. We are not seeking a typical gateway piece, but something creative and dynamic that reflects Ashland's welcoming, quaint, and quirky culture.

  • Deadline to apply: Monday, March 25th, 2024 at 11:59pm Eastern

  • Budget: $60,000

  • Honorarium for up to 3 finalists: $1,500 each

  • Eligibility: Open to all artists/artist teams with legal status to work in the United States without preference to racial/ethnic origins, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, or disability.

If selected as a finalist, proposals will be evaluated for: 

1. Design within the context of the site. 

2. Originality, creativity, and uniqueness of the proposed artwork. 

3. Quality and level of detail of models, maquettes, fully executed illustrations, and/or digital simulations. 

4. Budget and projected timeline for completion.

Questions? Please contact Martha J. Miller at mmiller@ashlandva.gov.
