Art in Parks Call for Artists Extended – APPLY TODAY!



2021 marks the beginning of an expansion of the City of Pittsburgh’s Art in Parks program. Thanks to a Regional Asset District grant, the City is seeking to implement high-impact public artworks in five parks across the region: Frick, Schenley, Emerald View, Riverview and Highland Park. 


The City of Pittsburgh has issued two requests for proposals (RFPs) around this project. First, we are seeking artist qualifications for individual artists or artist teams for each of the 5 parks. Second, we are seeking a project coordinator who can document this project through storytelling and community engagement. The deadline for applications is as follows:


Artist Qualifications (DEADLINE EXTENDED!): Tuesday, March 30, 2021 at 3p.m. EST

Project Coordinator: Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 3p.m. EST


We want to share this information in hopes that you can share it within your spheres of influence. This project is dedicated the creation of bold, forward-looking, creative projects that will have a radical impact on the region.


We are looking for artists who can realize high-impact projects across a range of previous experiences and budgets. Please use the narrative portion of the application to tell us about your experience realizing successful projects in the past. All applications will be considered and artists of all mediums and backgrounds and are encouraged to apply.
