Are you a knowledge keeper, contemporary artist, or traditional artist interested in making public art? The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, along with an Indigenous Public Art Selection Committee, invites artists’ proposals for new public artwork to be placed in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden or a location on the Walker campus.

Learn more about this call for art during an informational session at Watermark Art Center on March 30 from 2 – 4 p.m. Nisa Mackie, director and curator of education and public programs for the Walker Art Center, will share more about this opportunity and answer questions.

Attendees will learn about the process, have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss their work in the context of the public art setting and scale for the Sculpture Garden.

All artists with an idea that could be translated into large scale sculpture are encouraged to attend this free informational meeting. Individual or collaborative original work may be sculptural; incorporate other disciplines, such as audiovisual or installation art; or include traditionally sourced materials.

Light refreshments will be served.

The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, along with an Indigenous Public Art Selection Committee, invites artists’ proposals for a new public artwork for placement in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden or a location on the Walker campus.

The committee — a group of Native curators, knowledge keepers, artists, and arts professionals, including individuals of Dakota descent and enrollment — will participate with the Walker in the review and selection of the proposals. When a final proposal is selected, the Walker will work with and support the selected artist or artist collective in the production of the project, from technical development to engagement, per the terms of a written commission agreement.

The goal is to install the completed work in the fall of 2020.
