Fayetteville seeks artwork for construction fence surrounding Fay Jones woods

Fay Jones woods concepts / City of Fayetteville

The artwork of two local artists will be printed onto the construction fencing surrounding the upcoming Cultural Arts Corridor work zone in Fayetteville.

City officials, along with the Fayetteville Arts Council, are asking artists who are residents of Washington County to respond to an online Request for Qualification (RFQ) form to be considered for the project.

Initially, artists only need to share their resume and some examples of their past works. The Arts Council will then select four artists who will receive $200 if they submit specific proposals for the theme “Nature in the City.”

The two final artists selected will each receive another $850 for their work, which will temporarily be displayed on two 400-foot-long sections of mesh fence screening at the Fay Jones woods area along South Gregg Avenue and South West Avenue.

For more information, or to respond to the RFQ, visit fayetteville-ar.gov/3927/Artwork-for-Construction-Fence-Screen.

The deadline for RFQ submissions is 12 p.m. Monday, June 22.
