Courthouse Expansion (Concord, NC) – Call For Artists

Courthouse Expansion (Concord, NC) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] Cabarrus County, North Carolina is seeking artists or artist collaborations to create innovative, original, and site-specific artwork for the Cabarrus County Courthouse Expansion that is currently under construction in downtown Concord, NC.

Click here for the application / registration

Enter by: 20 Dec 2021

The Art Selection Committee for this project is seeking an artist or artist team who can understand and express, in a suspended, permanently-installed, large-scale piece, the Courthouse’s role in providing sound and fair justice. The location of the art will be in the main public lobby, where high windows afford views of the artwork from outside the building on three sides, as well as inside.

The total public art budget for the Courthouse Expansion project, including all aspects of design, fabrication, transport, and installation, is $350,000. One (1) to three (3) finalists will each receive a $2,500 stipend to cover design costs for their proposal and travel/ presentation.

About the Cabarrus County Courthouse

When completed, the new Cabarrus County Courthouse will be a 313,000 SF court facility that includes a new 240,000 SF addition to the existing 1975 courthouse. Together with the new construction, the existing 73,000 SF facility will undergo complete interior renovation and repurposing to fulfill long-term, multi-generational space requirements.

As noted in the Designers’ Narrative for the project, “While the existing courthouse fronting Union Street will be completely renovated, a new addition and public entry (off Means Ave Pedestrian Plaza) will reshape the identity of the courthouse campus. The intentional siting of this new primary entry is the defining element of the concept.”

Similarly, the artwork commissioned for this project will reshape and help define the perceptions of those entering or passing the Courthouse and frame a new experience of a ‘house of justice.’
The artwork will not only complement the architecture of the building, and provide an attraction – and distraction – for those entering; but also it shall help shift mindsets.
