Arts at a Glance

The enhancement of public places by integrating the creative work of artists improves the pedestrian experience and promotes vibrancy, creativity and livelihood in the community. The presence of and access to public art enlivens public areas and their grounds and makes them more welcoming. It creates a deeper interaction with the places where we live, work, and visit. Public art illuminates the diversity and history of a community, and points to its aspirations for the future.

The third annual Art Around Avon program has grown to include up to 26 amazing works!  There is now two separate and distinct RFP's / Artist Call Out processes.

  1. The first is like the past two years and includes up to 25 high traffic locations around the Town core.  The RFP/Artist Call Out for review is available here.  The link to CaFE for interested applicants to apply is available here.
  2. The second is the Town Center location (Avon Road roundabout #4) is the crowned jewel of the Art Around Avon program, and is a separate RFP/Artist Call Out. This location is of high significance and priority, an expansive space, centered location on Avon’s main thoroughfare, and has mountain vistas as a backdrop, will demand a prominent work with the ability to be seen by pedestrians from across Avon Road. The RFP/Artist Call Out for review is available here. The link to CaFE for interested applicants to apply is available here

We are accepting applications through March 26, 2023.
