City wants submissions for public art to go in downtown Atlanta park

Attention artists: Your work could be displayed in a downtown Atlanta park. 

The city’s Office of Cultural Affairs public art program is looking for local work to display in Hardy Ivy Park, located at 310 Peachtree St. NE, for up to two years. The piece will go atop a large concrete pedestal that’s surrounded by high rise buildings, submission materials say. 

The selected artist will receive an honorarium of up to $3,000 over a two-year period, and will retain ownership of the leased artwork.
