Downtown Little Rock Partnership announced a new public art initiative: the Alley Art Project will add vinyl reproductions of original artwork onto alley-facing doors throughout the downtown area.
The Alley Art Project is an initiative spearheaded by the Public Spaces committee of Downtown Little Rock Partnership. The purpose of the project is to connect artists and business owners in public appreciation, making downtown Little Rock more beautiful and improving the quality of life of its residents and visitors.
“We are very excited to launch this project,” said Gabe Holmstrom, DLRP Executive Director. “With various partners and the support of property owners, we will be able to add dynamic works of art to the downtown area and compensate artists for their creative work. We are accepting submissions today!”
Any artist may submit up to two of their pieces for consideration in the project. Submitted images must fit either a 36" x 84" single door or a 72" x 84" double door. Only applications submitted via the official form will be considered for inclusion. Once accepted, sample images of the artwork will be housed in a gallery on Downtown Little Rock Partnership’s website, from which business owners and sponsors may select for their property doors. If selected by a property owner or sponsor, the artist will receive a one-time stipend of $300, and the selected work will be removed from the gallery. For property owners interested in housing artwork on their door, pricing and size options include $600 for a single door or $750 for a double door. The price includes all installation and artist compensation costs.
To submit artwork, sponsor a door, or for more information, the public can visit this page - http://downtownlr.com/pages/alley-art-project/ - or call Downtown Little Rock Partnership at 501-375-0121.
