Program Specifics

The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana is seeking an artist or team of artists to create a public art piece to serve as a gateway to Downtown Evansville, housed on the entry plaza of WNIN Public Media’s new headquarters, located at Riverside Drive and Main Street.

The 2016 Downtown Master Plan Update suggested four Transformational Ideas, two of which meet at this project area: “Riverfront Enhancements” and “An Active Main Street.” The project’s location at WNIN’s headquarters on Main would help draw activity from the riverfront to the traditional Main Street shopping and dining area (which begins at Main and 2nd) and from the Main Street shopping and dining area to the center of the riverfront (Riverside at Main). The link created by the piece will join other future pieces in this two-block long section of Main.
