The Denver Public Art Team will be hosting a pre-application meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 5:30-6:30 p.m. The meeting will cover project backgrounds, goals, and the application process for the recently advertised Request for Qualifications: Urban Peak Mothership Youth Shelter. Attendees will also get information on callforentry.org (CafE) through which we are accepting applications.
Please attend to learn more about the application process, ask questions, and determine if you’d like to apply for this project.
Mothership Youth Shelter – Exterior Artwork: Budget – approximately $180,000, Artists or Artist Teams residing in the United States
Urban Peak's new Mothership Youth Shelter, the region’s first youth shelter, will be situated within the Overland Park neighborhood. Artwork should explore the question “What does home feel like?” Artists are encouraged to consider biophilic and trauma-informed design strategies that support mental health through color, pattern and subject matter. The panel is especially interested in inviting artists to apply who have relationships with homelessness, having worked with unhoused populations in the past or who were formerly unhoused themselves. Interested artists may submit qualifications at https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=11767 through Sept. 25.
Artists who have never received a public art commission, or have never applied for one, are highly encouraged to attend.
This event will be hosted on Zoom. Please register to get information on how to join prior to the event.
