Hey everyone:

Be sure to check out this national call for installation artists in DC. 

Request for Qualifications
FY20 Playable Art DC Design Competition 

Submission Deadline: Friday, August 23, 2019 at 4:00 pm ET
The DC Commission on Arts and Humanities (CAH) in partnership with the DC Office of Planning (OP) is excited to announce a national call to artists for the Playable Art DC, a creative play and placemaking project.  This project is made possible through a grant from ArtPlace America. CAH and OP are seeking artists and design professionals with prior site-specific public art experience to design, fabricate and install playable artworks at three unique sites in the District of Columbia. The competition includes two-stage selection process: request for qualifications and site specific designs.

Request for Qualifications (RFQ): Applications will be reviewed and evaluated based on prior work demonstrating a minimum of four years of site-specific public art and/or placemaking experience. Up to three finalists will be selected for each of the three sites.

Site Specific Designs: Selected finalists for each site will be required to visit the locations and participate in community input sessions.  This will form the basis for the development of site-specific designs that will be evaluated to determine a winning proposal for each site.  The intention is to create engaging and playful works of art that will be a source of neighborhood pride for all residents.

Each location will have a site-specific selection panel that will evaluate applications, select finalists, sit for finalist presentations and select a winning proposal.
