9th Street Corridor Project Call for Art Qualifications – Lawrence Arts Center
Deadline: October 1, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. CST
The Lawrence Arts Center has received a prestigious ArtPlace grant award for the application of creative placemaking in the reconstruction of east 9th Street in Lawrence, Kansas. A creative team, experienced in urban design, complete streets, civil engineering and creative placemaking, will work with the City of Lawrence, the neighborhood boards (ELNA and DLI), and other community stakeholders to create a design to reconstruct and revitalize six blocks of east 9th Street, from Delaware Street to Massachusetts Street. The project will create a multi-modal connection utilizing accessible complete streets concepts, upgraded amenities, and a new model of urban infrastructure that will enable local artists to engage our community in ways inspired by the revolutionary and counter-culture spirit of Lawrence and our favorite iconoclasts John Brown, Langston Hughes, and William S. Burroughs.
