Action Greensboro is seeking submissions of interest and qualifications from professional artists who currently reside in the United States for the creation of the second of four major public art cornerstones to be commissioned for the Downtown Greenway in Greensboro, NC.
Tradition Cornerstone (Northwest Cornerstone)
The second Cornerstone to be commissioned will be the Tradition Cornerstone. It will be located on the Northwest corner of the Downtown Greenway at the corner of Prescott and West Smith Streets, Greensboro, NC 27401, a highly visible site situated along the main corridor into Greensboro’s city center. Northwest Greensboro was the site of a key battle and turning point of the Revolutionary War, and the theme for this Cornerstone was chosen in part to reflect that proximity. At this location the Downtown Greenway will also serve as an important connector to an extensive network of Greensboro Parks and Recreation greenways and facilities, including Country Park, the Natural Science Center, The Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway and the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park.
