Call For Artists / Request For Proposals for Sculptural Courtyard Art in Hyattsville, MD at Parkview Manor Apartments
gro.c1550834735dcell1550834735ivstt1550834735ayh@r1550834735iafj1550834735 301.683.8267 desk, 207.470.3805 fax
https://www.hycdc.org Commission: $35,000

PRECIS  The Hyattsville Community Development Corporation (CDC), on behalf of Montgomery Housing Partnership (MHP), is accepting artist proposals for the design and fabrication of one (1) sculptural shade structure and two (2) complementary sculptural courtyard art amenities, for placement at Parkview Manor Apartments, located in Hyattsville, within Prince George’s County, Maryland.


Parkview Manor is a garden apartment community located 1 mile between the West Hyattsville Metro Station and the Route 1 Corridor, at 5040 38th Street, Hyattsville, MD 20782. Starting Summer 2018, the property will be renovated to provide residents healthier living amenities including energy efficient appliances, fixtures, roofing, insulation, and two captivating art infused courtyards built for community engagement.  This project is meant to complement the city’s Hamilton Street ‘Artway North’ initiative with sculptural elements or structures that create pleasant, meditative outdoor spaces inviting children to play, commuters to rest, and the community to gather. It will introduce art to emphasize a welcoming community. This project is privately funded and intended to engage the imagination of the local arts community to promote a public facing identity and to optimize limited open-space. MHP’s aim is to provide quality affordable homes that empower families and strengthen the neighborhood, and the CDC’s mission is to revitalize the community through unique and engaging art and public spaces. In confluence, this commission thematically calls for:

A – REST: One appropriately scaled uniquely designed, sculptural shade / seating structure to be placed on the front lawn, proximate to the southern bus stop. Non-conducive to sleeping.

B – PLAY: One locally-designed playful, family-friendly play sculpture/structure that children (ages 2-9) can play upon in the northern courtyard: when not in use the structure would stand as an aesthetic work in its own right. An integral slide would be interesting and welcome. The sculpture would be situated on a rubberized mulch area (outside the scope of this call).

C – ART: One sculpture (non-conductive to play) that can serve to visually bridge the two REST and PLAY amenities.
