Frances Plaza - Meet the Artist Proposal Presentations

Postby BourbonBoy » Wed Jun 04, 2008 11:12 am

The Frances Plaza Public Art Selection Committee will be viewing presentations and making a recommendation this Thursday evening. Frances Plaza was identified in the State Street reconstruction plan to incorporate public art.

From the city's Arts Program Administrator:

Please join us for the artist finalist presentations for a Public Art Project at Frances Plaza

Thursday, June 5 , 2008
5:30 to 8:00 pm
Wisconsin Studio
Overture Center for the Arts

We would like for these nationally known artists to have the opportunity to present their proposals in front of citizens who are interested in the design of Madison's public spaces. If you want to share your opinions with the selection committee, please come to the Overture Center meeting on Thursday, June 5th and let them know who you think should receive the commission to create this City's next major public art project.

The five finalists are:

    ActualSize from Stoughton, Wisconsin
    Tom Askman from Cheney, Washington
    Myklebust + Sears from Stockholm, Wisconsin
    Stoller Studio from Portola Valley, California
    Howard Ben Tre from Pawtucket, Rhode Island

You can see examples of the finalist's past work and artist interviews, at the Madison Arts Commission website under Frances Plaza ... sPlaza.cfm

This is your opportunity to offer public input and opinion about the final proposals to the selection committee. If you have questions about the Frances Plaza Public Art Project or are unable to attend the Thursday meeting, but you have comments you would like to share with the selection committee, please send them to

Karin Wolf, Arts Program Administrator
Madison Arts Commission
