There are a lot of great things that get done through the PBIA and the ODA that largely go under the radar. This is not one of them, and is a project that I am particularly proud to be part of. Kudos goes to Dave Rauh of MIXX 96 for making this happen two years in a row.
Here's the deal. The PBIA has set aside money to pay local artists--$1000 honorarium and $500 for supplies--to take a bench from downtown and have their way with it. The results of the first round were great. And now we're ready for the next round. My goal is to get every bench downtown redone courtesy of our pantheon of artists. And then to add more benches, but that is for later.
For now, check out the attatched RFP and application. Due date is Feb. 27th. So get off your keisters and show us what you got.
