Call to Artists for the Freedom Cornerstone

Posted on

We are seeking artists from across the country to submit a proposal for the Freedom Cornerstone, which is the last of the 4 cornerstones to be built on the Downtown Greenway. 

The theme of “Freedom” was inspired by the City’s role in the Civil Rights Movement, especially the non-violent protests of the pivotal 1960 Greensboro lunch-counter sit-ins that served as a catalyst to the larger movement. Racial justice and equity have played an important role in shaping our city and defining its identity. The selected artist will be asked to explore this history in depth as they conceive of a vision for the artwork. 
The deadline for submissions is August 21, 2019 at 5:00 pm. Click here for submission guidelines and more information. Questions?  Contact Public Art Consultant, Barbara Peck at
