The Toe River Arts with the Town of Burnsville desires to hire 3-4 artists to design images that can be adapted for laser cut fabrication for metal traffic signal pole wraps at 3-4 major gateway intersections on Scenic Highway 19E. The public art opportunities at Burnsville’s three major gateways into downtown were identified in the Burnsville Public Art SmART Vision Plan created by artist Jack Mackie with the community. The gateways into Burnsville are a part of the NC DOT road widening project along this major corridor. Funding by the National Endowment of the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council have been secured for this project.
NOTE: Previous experience producing CAD files or working with laser-cutting is not required to be eligible for this RFQ. The Town of Burnsville and Toe River Arts welcomes submittals by artists of all mediums.
