Bakery Square is requesting qualifications from individual artists or artist collaboratives, to provide artwork for the exterior façade of its freshly remodeled building at 6425 Penn Ave.
The project seeks an artist or group of artists who can work with the community of the Bakery Square/Larimer Consensus Group, in the Larimer neighborhood of Pittsburgh to design and install a dynamic and inspiring work of temporary art (6-12 months display) for this location. All types of artists and artworks are open to this opportunity, including, but not limited to painted murals, multimedia, light-based art, digital, façade-based sculpture, and any other that can be feasibly realized upon the façade of the building. A committee composed of Bakery Square staff, Larimer residents, and local art experts will choose an individual or team to contract for design and production of artwork in Early Spring, 2021.
An Information session will be held via Zoom on Thursday, January 21 at 6 pm. Click here to enter the Zoom meeting the day of.
A selected artist(s) will have a budget ranging from $20,000 – $30,000 that includes design fees, travel, insurance, and all fabrication/installation/removal/permitting costs (as applicable).
