February 26, 2020 (Moscow, Idaho) -- The City of Moscow welcomes submissions for two public art opportunities: Intermodal Transit Center Sculpture Garden and Vinyl-Wrapped Traffic Signal Boxes. Part of the city's temporary public art collection, these locations provide art for public viewing and exhibition space for regional artists. The deadline to apply is Thurs., May 7.
The Intermodal Transit Center (ITC), located near the University of Idaho campus, is a one-stop concept for transportation in the community. Each year, a selection panel chooses five sculptures to be displayed in the Sculpture Garden for approximately 12 months. These three-dimensional artworks are viewed by travelers utilizing the ITC and University of Idaho students on their way to campus. Each selected artist will receive an honorarium of $200 for the loan of their artwork.
Traffic signal boxes are street fixtures located throughout cities. In Moscow, selected boxes are beautified with durable and weather resistant vinyl wraps. Artworks are chosen each year by a selection panel to be installed and displayed for up to five years. Each selected artist will receive an honorarium of $500 for the use of their original design.
