PLEASE NOTE – This Call for Art originates from a public art program, not Xanadu Gallery. Submissions and questions should be made according to their instructions below. Comments and questions left on this page will not be seen by the public art program.
The Public Art Planning Committee seeks an artist to design and create artwork that will celebrate Norfolk not only as a business and transportation hub but as an arts and cultural destination. The artwork should orient travelers and serve as a way finder between the train, the light rail, parking, the river, roadways and downtown. Our goals are for the final artwork to unify, interweave and stitch the site together linking a variety of modes of transportation and also philosophically connect the present to our hopes and dreams for the future. The artwork will be enjoyed by train passengers, who often will depart and leave at dark as well as be seen at all hours of the day by downtown commuters, visitors and business people from Richmond and D.C. Baseball patrons, pedestrians, bikers, runners, boaters and perhaps even travelers on the interstate will also experience the public art.
