Call to Artists to Create Art for Whittier Elem School

The City of Boise, Capital City Development Corporation and the Veterans Park Neighborhood Association seek an artist or art team to create an artful boundary at Whittier Elementary, located at 301 N. 29th Street. The west side of the school’s playground is adjacent to the new Whitewater Park Boulevard, a busy five-lane boulevard. Road construction required the removal of many trees and shrubs from the west side of the playground, leaving the schoolyard exposed to a very busy street. Whittier is a Title 1 school with children who speak over 13 languages, many of them new immigrants.To reflect the changing demographics of our city, this public art installation is a celebration of community involvement and support for a school in the midst of a physical transition to a new, much more urban situation.

Submittal Deadline: Wednesday, October 9th, 2013, 3:00PM, local Boise time
