Clinton National Airport in Little Rock launches an Art in the Airport program to give travelers a sense of place as they arrive in Arkansas.
Calls For Artists
Opportunities are open to artists currently residing in Arkansas or those who have lived, worked or studied in the state.
Submissions are due August 23, 2020.
Floor Design Opportunity 1: Seeking an artist, or artist team, to design the terrazzo floor that will finish the updated pre-security lobby. This area welcomes millions each year while also serving as the one of the last impressions of those visiting the state and flying home.
The selected artist will create a custom design for the floor while the airport will contract for fabrication and installation. A design fee of $10,000 will be provided with a separate budget for fabrication and installation.
Wall Artwork Opportunity 2: Seeking an artist, or artist team, to design and possibly fabricate a wall-mounted work or installation to highlight the state’s landscape to those arriving passengers entering the terminal. This project will be located on a curved wall in the concourse exit area and should celebrate the natural beauty of the region and welcome people to Little Rock and Arkansas.
The selected artist will receive a design fee of $10,000. An additional budget will be set for fabrication and installation. Based on the selected artist’s concept proposal, and in consultation with the artist, the airport may contract for the fabrication and installation with an outside contractor or with the selected artist.
Please submit all artist questions to email@example.com no later than August 9.
