  • Public art can help define an area by creating an entryway.

The StudioMAIN design cooperative is seeking artists to create sculpture for Main Street between 12th and 17th, work that will be funded by a matching gift of $45,000 from the John and Robyn Horn Foundation, the Quapaw Central Business Improvement District No. 5 and Bernice Garden and Esse Purse Museum founder Anita Davis.

StudioMAIN says its Public Arts Master Plan will "refine current fixtures and infrastructure, invigorate the streetscape with public arts projects and connect South Main with the greater downtown district." There will be three art exhibit spaces along the identified blocks.

A call to artists goes out Aug. 1, and site information will be released at that time. StudioMain is located at 1423 Main St., Suite C (72202). For more information on sculpture guidelines, contact James Meyer, southmainpublicart@gmail.com or 374-5300, or go to www.southmainpublicart.com.
