The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is also pleased to release a Call for Artists for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Park Playground. The selected Project Artist(s) will be part of the project’s Design Team. The Design Team will work collaboratively with the community and stakeholders to develop a schematic design for a playground and related site improvements. While the MPRB is responsible for leading the community engagement process, the Project Artist(s) will be responsible for giving visual voice to the community’s stories of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Civil Rights Movement and/or African American History to inform the playground and site design. Through this context, additional stories of community diversity may emerge and be woven into the schematic design.
Proposals are due July 3, 2013 at 12 pm.
