BACKGROUND: The Artery, a bike, pedestrian and vehicle connection and community space on 8th Avenue South between the future Downtown Hopkins Light Rail Transit station and the City's historic downtown, opened in 2018 and has several pieces of permanent art. The Artery cases were designed to hold two dimensional and possibly some three dimensional artwork. The intent of the cases are to showcase local and regional artists while adding interest to the public spaces.
ELIGIBLE ARTWORK FOR DISPLAY
APPLICATION PROCESS: Applications to have your artwork displayed in the Artery cases will be accepted on an ongoing basis. To be considered, please complete the online application. If you prefer, you may also print the application and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selected artwork will be on display for approximately 30 days. This may be adjusted if mutually agreed upon by Hopkins Center for the Arts and the artist.
2019 will be a year of experimentation. The intent will be to allow different artists the ability to use the cases while we learn what the parameters are for display and what forms of art are best suited for our goals. Based on what we learn during this experimental period, guidelines for use will be amended as needed.
