Public Art for Cooper Park, Dayton, Ohio

Artists are invited to propose a public artwork to be placed in Cooper Park in the City of Dayton, Ohio. This privately funded, city-owned artwork is intended to communicate the value of public service. The call for entries and project implementation are managed by Build Art In, LLC. The selected potential site(s) for artwork will be located outdoors in a public urban park with mature trees, sidewalks and new play equipment. The centerpiece of the park is a bronze statue of William McKinley, erected in 1910. The new sculpture should be created in relationship to these other elements and must be durable and easily maintained, on a substantial, professionally poured foundation that extends at least 12 inches beyond any part of the sculpture. It cannot be sited directly under a tree or in a way that damages tree roots. If designed to be interactive/accessible, meeting ADA requirements may be required.
