“But the end is reconciliation; the end is redemption; the end is the creation of the beloved community. It is this type of spirit and this type of love that can transform opposers into friends. It is this type of understanding goodwill that will transform the deep gloom of the old age into the exuberant gladness of the new age. It is this love which will bring about miracles in the hearts of men.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Facing the Challenge of a New Age,” 1956
Call for Artists
The Arts Center and Corvallis Parks and Recreation in Corvallis, Oregon, invite artists to submit their qualifications for the design and installation of permanent public art that will be a part of the enhancements at Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park (MLK Park). Public art in the park will help create a welcoming place for all people, complementing a park design inspired by Dr. King’s philosophies of inclusion and equality. For more about the MLK Request for Qualifications go to The Arts Center page below.
Public art and design elements will be utilized at multiple locations in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park. Separate RFQs will be published for the following sites: (1) Entry Plaza, (2) The Commons and (3) The Art Mural Wall. Each will have separate budgets and review processes with the MLK Art Selection Committee. The Art Selection Committee intends to select a different artist or artist team for each location.
