Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) seeks proposals for site-specific, temporary public art that will enliven the East Avenue
neighborhood. RoCo encourages proposals for incisive, surprising, and unique sculpture and installation art of all forms, including media-based works. Of particular interest are projects that connect visitors to the location, buildings, park landscape, community and/or history of the neighborhood. Proposals for works that prompt visitors to return multiple times to experience changes in the piece are encouraged. RoCo welcomes visual artists, sculptors, sound artists, performing artists, photographers, filmmakers, and others to submit a proposal.
RoCo’s public art program will give one artist the opportunity to envision, produce, and exhibit a sculpture or multimedia work adjacent to
RoCo. The completed work will be exhibited to the public 24/7 for one to four months. The duration will be determined with RoCo staff based on the seasons and circumstances. Works may be offered for sale during the exhibition period. The artwork, if not sold by the end of the exhibition period, will remain the property of the artist. Artist will receive a $2,000 - $3,000 grant to support their project (50% materials, 50% artist stipend).
