Competition: Design Team Artist.

Genre(s): Architectural and Visual arts.

Welcome to the back pages of the Gilbert Wesley Purdy Online Bibliography. Rather than merely use a few pages for the Bibliography I have decided to begin posting calls for submissions again. I will be posting information about literary and arts competitions, as well. So you may want to subscribe to the Bibliography RSS (or Atom) in order to get the latest information. If you wish to have your own call for submissions or competition posted, contact me at gwpurdy@yahoo.com. A confirming link may be required in order to post your notice. I will include all notices the I have time to post.

Oh, and I hope you will stop in at the Hyperlinked Internet Bibliography page, as well. Perhaps you will find something of interest there.

Comments: "Goal is to commission an artist/designer to work with the engineering/landscape architecture project team to design artistic pedestrian bridges and gateways for the 1.75-mile linear trail corridor. The project is expected to engage and celebrate the community’s history, diverse cultures and ecology. The selected artist/artist team will work with the engineering/landscape architecture team, the community and other partners to incorporate thematic elements in the actual design of bridges and gateways. The final design is funded and underway with a phased approach and quick timeline. The selected artist/artist team should be willing and able to immediately begin working with the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust and the engineering/landscape architecture team."
