Call for Public Art: Great Place to Bee

Keep Gastonia Beautiful’s Art Committee seeks to commission artwork for the downtown area of Gastonia, North Carolina titled “Great Place to Bee” and include interactive smaller art pieces that will weave/waggle their way through Main Street to a larger art piece. The artwork will be sited in a prominent location at a Gateway to the new FUSE Baseball Stadium. Seeking artists who are regional in either North or South Carolina. With the completion of the FUSE District and new baseball stadium and team named, the Honey Hunters, we were motivated to create ways to flourish our downtown with public art and education on bees. We envision groups “buzzing” around downtown searching for metal bees, ending at a bee-related sculpture near the new stadium. RFQ online (PDF).
