Public Art Commission issues “Call for Artists” to commemorate Renaissance Centre’s 10-year anniversary

The Wake Forest Public Art Commission (PAC) is commemorating the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre’s 10-year anniversary by issuing a “Call for Artists” at for a permanent public art installation inside the Renaissance Centre lobby.

The theme of the piece is open to the artist’s discretion, but artists are encouraged to use the Renaissance Centre's 10-year anniversary logo as inspiration and incorporate the 10-year anniversary color palette. The piece must be free-standing or displayed on an independent stand. In addition, all standing/sculptural art must either have its own sturdy pedestal, provided by the selected artist, or be able to be safely displayed directly and free-standing on the floor in a public space.

To be eligible, artists must reside in in one of the following counties: Granville, Franklin, Nash, Johnston, Harnett, Chatham, Durham, or Wake.

As part of this initiative, qualified applicants are invited to submit five to 10 images of either the artwork being submitted or examples of other work that demonstrate the skill and media of the artist. There is no entry fee.

An Artist Selection Committee comprised of members of the Wake Forest PAC, Renaissance Centre staff, and other relevant parties will jury all submissions and select the winning artist.

The application deadline is Monday, May 15. For complete details, visit or contact Renaissance Centre Specialist Debra Horton at
