In the run up to Iowa’s 175th Anniversary, the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs continues to look for ways to engage Iowa artists, who can visually represent the diversity and breadth of our state’s history.
The Iowa Arts Council, in collaboration with the State Historical Society of Iowa, seeks submissions from Iowa artists interested in creating an indoor, site-specific artwork for the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs' offices, which are located in the State Historical Building at 600 E. Locust Street in Des Moines. We are particularly interested in work from Iowa artists experienced in mural arts and/or designing site-specific artworks.
A small number of selected finalists will each receive a stipend to develop design concepts. The selected artist(s) will also receive a fee for creating the artwork. The selected artist(s) will be required to complete the work between July 19-31, 2021.
Deadline to submit is June 24, 2021.
