Spare pARTS Public Art Initiative deadline April 19

The Fort Worth Avenue Development Group announces the return of the Spare pARTS Public Art Initiative. The deadline is April 19, 2013.


Overview and Project Goals

The Fort Worth Avenue Development Group is happy to announce the return of the Spare pARTS Public Art Initiative. We are requesting proposals from Dallas area artists for functional, site-specific artwork that encourages pedestrian activity and makes use of recycled/repurposed materials. Our goal is to encourage street life and pride along Fort Worth Avenue by recruiting and supporting the artistic ingenuity that epitomizes the DIY spirit of the area.


-Reuse, repurpose: Installations must make useof recycled, re-used, and re-defined materials in
keeping with the spirit of the incremental redevelopment of the neighborhood.
-Utility: The art is required to fill a utilitarian role, such as providing shade, seating, bike parking, lighting, etc.
-Location: The installation(s) will be placed on private property along Fort Worth Avenue. Artists are encouraged to visit the site and must tailor their proposal to that specific location.
