Call For Artists: City Seeking Proposals for Outdoor Sculpture to Celebrate City's 150th Anniversary

The City of Highland Park seeks proposals from experienced artists for an outdoor sculpture to celebrate the City’s sesquicentennial anniversary. The sculpture should represent the City’s rich history, tradition, and culture.

Two voluntary site walk-throughs will be held for interested artists and/or their representatives on Sunday, October 28 and Monday, October 29, 2018 at 10 AM at the  Highland Park Fire Department headquarters located at 1130 Central Avenue, Highland Park, IL. This is the preferred sculpture site as recommended by the HP150 Steering Committee. Artists intending to submit a proposal for this project are encouraged to attend a walk-through to discuss the proposed location and criteria.

The City of Highland Park will celebrate its sesquicentennial (150th anniversary) in 2019 with highly visible special events, concerts, City tours and more. Plans are underway for a wide variety of festivities which will bring the community together to celebrate the community and its wonderful history. Learn more about the City’s HP150 Celebrations at
