The Montevideo Arts Project (MAP), in partnership with the City of Montevideo, is seeking an artist interested in planning and designing a public art project, utilizing three sets of staircases in downtown Montevideo.

The artist will work with the city to complete a project proposal regarding the staircases, work with MAP to set goals for the project, including feedback from the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP), include community engagement in the project proposal, and research/fully describe the maintenance and longevity of the project.

The artist compensation for the planning stage will be $1,500, and once completed, MAP will begin fundraising the project, between $5,000 and $25,000.

The theme for the project is “Healthy Communities,” but will be developed further during the planning phase.
