The City of Bloomington’s Public Health Division in partnership with the Creative Placemaking Commission invite experienced public artists to submit qualifications for the design, creation, and installation/assembly of a unique, moveable small-scale sculpture or mural. This artwork is meant to serve as a memorial to those lost to COVID 19, and as a reflection on this time in history and the resiliency of the city’s residents and employees over the course of the pandemic. 

Community engagement integrated throughout the process should allow for Bloomington’s community to shape how their parts of this story will continue to be told, and foster community healing. Engagement efforts should support the development of artwork that appeals to, represents, and reflects the diversity of Bloomington.  Additionally, this artwork is meant to be welcoming to people of all ages, cultures, races, and backgrounds. This artwork should be something that can be easily transported to various sites and reassembled by staff for temporary display indoors if it is a painting or indoors and outdoors if it is a sculpture.
