The Asheville Downtown Association Foundation recently received a grant from a local foundation to install a work of public art on the staircase between Wall Street and Battery Park Avenue in Downtown Asheville. This installation will liven the area and create a complete image when viewing from Wall Street. We are working with the City of Asheville as well to install the art, through a pilot program in development called Place Partners.
An RFQ to artists was recently distributed and can be found here. We would like to reach as many area artists as possible and encourage you to share this RFQ widely. The deadline to submit qualifications is Friday, August. 10 at 5pm.
