Request for Proposals

The Mattapan Arts Council (M.A.C.) is planning to re-purpose public space for placemaking activities near Mattapan Square.   M.A.C. is requesting proposals from visual artists to make a small public building on the Neponset River Greenway ‘pop’ with light, sound and/or visual effects.  


The proposal(s) selected will be incorporated into our broader campaign to prepare Mattapan Square for the Fairmount Cultural Corridor’s arrival here in early 2019.   We hope to create a culturally-relevant visual transformation and permanent beautification with paint, 3D materials, technology-based art or any other art materials not contemplated here.


Your proposal should include the following:

         • a 500-word description of the art planned;

         • a timeline for design, fabrication, and installation;

         • a budget for artist fees and materials; and,

         • a bio with photos, video or links to the artist’s past art projects.


     Proposals should be submitted by midnight on Monday, April 24th to . This historic building is situated next to the Mattapan T Station just off Blue Hill Avenue near Mattapan Square, and proximate to “Rise/Gateway,” by Fern Cunningham and Karen Eutemey.
