City of Lewisville Public Library- Indoor Public Art Opportunity

Project Description: The City of Lewisville is seeking qualifications from artists who wish to create an indoor work of public art in the Lewisville Public Library. Specifically, the city seeks an artist who can create an installation piece, sculptural in nature, that would wrap around or climb a tall brick column found in the atrium of the library. This work will utilize the height of the column and surrounding space to provide a visually striking component to the library that will inspire wonder, draw the eye upward, and excite engagement.
