We seek an artist to work with urban planners and community partners to design environmental public art that will address Norfolks relationship with water. The artwork will be a catalyst for embracing creative solutions for adapting to sea level rise. Artist are encouraged to philosophically investigate meaningful and beautifully designed interventions to sustain livability, preserve the environment and further develop the economic vitality of our shoreline community. The final artwork should educate about Norfolks water challenges, foster dialog and point towards solutions. Water could be held where it falls, cleaned, used, or slowly released before it returns to the Chesapeake Bay. Artists may want to physically demonstrate solutions and may include permeable surfaces, water retention swales, cisterns, rain barrels or green or blue roofs. The work should be hopeful, provocative, revealing and tell the story of the water. No additional specifications were given.
