Igniting Our Community with Public Art in Pynchon Plaza
*This call is now completed. View our selected artists here.
THEME: Art should be literally or abstractly inspired by Springfield’s cultural and historical legacies, including past and/or present day residents, neighborhoods, cultural traditions and landmarks, places and landscapes, architecture, and other distinctive qualities that make the city a special place to live, work, and visit.
There are a total of eight (8) projects. Art should be inspired by Springfield’s people, cultures, places and historical legacies, which may include, but is not limited to, Springfield landscape, iconic architecture, people, or cultures and can be literal or creative/interpretive representations.
We encourage artists to utilize the theme in a way that ensures that Springfield residents are reflected in the artwork and have pride in the public art created through SPark!.
