About

The Wilkinsburg Community Development Corporation (WCDC) has issued an RFQ (Request For
Qualifications) for artists interested in participating in a public art project along the Wood Street
commercial corridor in Wilkinsburg.

The Wood Street Corridor Art Project is being spearheaded by the WCDC’s Design Committee, a
group of Wilkinsburg residents, stakeholders and experts working to create a unified, vibrant business
district by developing plans for physical improvements. The goal of the Wood Street Art Project is to
collaborate with artists to create a sense of place in Wilkinsburg and enhance the streetscape from
Pennwood Avenue to Wallace Avenue, uplifting the corridor as a destination.

Two professional artists will be selected to submit one proposal each for a public artwork to be permanently displayed. Each artist selected for this stage will be placed under contract and paid a $200 stipend for proposal development and presentation.

This opportunity is open to visual artists with experience working collaboratively with communities.
Professional artists who are new to the field of public art are encouraged to apply.
