Lowell, MA  –  Appleton Mills Art Installation Project CALL FOR ENTRIES/ RFQ

This project is open to all artists/ designers/ teams residing in New England, including collaborations with writers or sound artists/ musicians.

$15,000. Five to ten finalists will receive a $500 honorarium to develop a proposal for public exhibition at the 10th Annual Open Studios in Lowell on September 24, 25 and 26, 2010. One artist/ designer/ team will be commissioned for the project.

Project Description and Background:
Trinity Financial invites artists/ designers/ teams to forward qualifications for an artwork to be permanently installed in the four-story atrium of the Appleton Mills redevelopment, an historic textile mill located at 219 Jackson Street in downtown Lowell, Massachusetts. The work to be commissioned could be a freestanding, wall-mounted or suspended piece. Appleton Mills will offer 130 affordably priced, modern loft-style rental apartments for artists of all media, including writers and musicians. The redevelopment of the Appleton Mills is the first phase of the revitalization of the Hamilton Canal District, a project that will reinvent 13 acres of vacant and underutilized land as a new and vibrant mixed-use neighborhood in downtown Lowell. Trinity, a Boston-based developer, is undertaking this renovation project, which is scheduled for completion in spring 2011. The Urban Arts Institute at Massachusetts College of Art and Design (UrbanArts) is facilitating the project.
