CityPlace Streetscape

As part of the ongoing Great Streets Initiative, the CityPlace Streetscape Project seeks to incorporate public art into the streetscape surrounding the new mixed-use facility. This call to artists specifically aims to attract applicants who identify as Black or brown, historically marginalized or disenfranchised individuals, or individuals who may not have had access to traditional arts education and training and are looking to add public art project experience to their portfolio. The deadline for submitting qualifications was September 22, 2023, 11:59 PM EDT. If you have questions, please email Colin Storrs at cstorrs@burlingtoncityarts.org.

Burlington International Airport

Burlington International Airport (BTV) is excited to partner with BCA on a call-to-artists for a new permanent artwork at the airport. The work will be created on a substrate and installed in a second-floor hallway, part of the newly opened TSA area. This installation will celebrate Burlington and Vermont's ongoing commitment to innovation, equity, and environmental sustainability as well as the stunning natural beauty that defines our region. The deadline for submitting qualifications was September 22, 2023, 11:59 PM EDT. If you have questions, please email Jessica Manley at jmanley@burlingtoncityarts.org.

Great Streets Initiative: Main Street

The City of Burlington is currently in the process of commissioning public artwork to be integrated into the renovation of Main Street, between South Union Street and Battery Street, as part of the Great Street Initiative. This renovation is the culmination of many years of planning and project development designed to make new investments in the downtown’s public infrastructure. The project is intended to ensure that Burlington residents have a downtown that is a vibrant, walkable, and sustainable urban center.

In November 2022, Burlington City Arts issued a Call-to-Artists for artists to submit their qualifications for review by a community panel. The panel has selected 15 finalists to create site-specific proposals, which will be reviewed and the final artwork will be integrated into the project in the summer of 2023.

Embrace and Belonging 

In the summer of 2021, the City of Burlington's Racial Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (REIB) office conceived of a public art project that would become a landmark focal point for the community. REIB Partnered with Burlington City Arts (BCA) and Burlington Parks, Recreation, and Waterfront (BPRW) to find a suitable location for the project. Dewey Park was viewed as an ideal location based on a variety of factors, including its central location in the Old North End and proximity to the Integrated Arts Academy, which would make the artwork highly visible to a broad community, especially Burlington’s youth. The park is also home to a farmer’s market in the summer, reinforcing the project’s commitment to strengthening community involvement and use of the park. REIB partnered with BCA to issue a call to artists, support the selection process, and manage the implementation of the project.
