Space in exchange for public art

One idea that I found very interesting today was the idea of providing artists with free or subsidized space to create art in exchange for a public art project. It may be a widely utilized program, but it was a new concept to me.


This could be an opportunity to partner with other organizations (Arts Council, Old Town Association, NEA, Etc) to encourage artist development in the State's first cultural district and fulfill the need for more public art.


A community was mentioned that had a program like this. I found another that does something similar.

    On March 14th, Project for Public Spaces (PPS) hosted a 2 day workshop in the Gettys Courtroom, where RHEDC, community members, Placemaking team members, and city staff came together to identify placemaking opportunities in Knowledge Park. We participated in several group exercises, did a walking tour of downtown, and created concept placemaking maps for 5 specific locations. PPS then created a Placemaking Master Plan in the following weeks, designed to activate underutilized spaces in Knowledge Park that will attract knowledge workers, businesses, residents, and visitors.

    I ran across this over the weekend - while this particular initiative is to increase diversity in the food industry, I thought the concept was pretty cool and perhaps even doable in Rock Hill.
