The Block on Main in Holly Springs, NC

is looking to commission local artists

for three public art projects. 

Artists can submit proposals for one or all projects.

The Block is a 54,000 SF mixed use building located in downtown Holly Springs, NC.  From the onset, we knew that our U-shaped building would be a major downtown attraction and landmark. As the downtown heart of Holly Springs, the Block's architecture needed to reflect our historical culture, traditions and values while promoting our changing identity, visions and demographics. At the same time, the design needed to carefully balance form and function by being both a timeless showpiece while playing host to various community activities.

PROPOSAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

​Artists interested in this project must prepare and submit a single PDF per project proposal. Submission shall include the following:

  • Images / renderings of the proposed project. 

  • Written narrative (no more than one page) describing the concept of the design
