Town of Kittery requests proposals from artists

The Town of Kittery invites artists and/or designers to project their imagination and creativity onto the concrete barriers in the Foreside, to transform them into public art.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town of Kittery, in partnership with local stakeholders and the business community, reconfigured segments of its roadway and pedestrian infrastructure to accommodate businesses to extend their operations on town sidewalks. To do so, the Town put concrete barriers into the streets to protect pedestrians and patrons on the new sidewalks.

Artists and designers interested in contributing to this public art effort are encouraged to complete the newly launched Street Barrier Beautification Application, to propose their creative design ideas for the barriers.

To download the application, please click here.  All completed applications should be submitted to Town Planner, Bart McDonough via email at bmcdonough@kitteryme.org or by mail to the Town of Kittery Planning and Development Department, 200 Rogers Road, Kittery, ME 03904.

The Town will be reviewing applications, beginning by July 30, 2020.
