Public Art in Salem The City of Salem has issued two calls to artists: 1. a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) from artists and designers interested in creating a site-responsive public art installation in the heart of downtown Salem during the summer/fall of 2016. Artists and designers working in any media, including light, are encouraged to submit qualifications. The site for the public art project is the area surrounding Old Town Hall from Essex Street on the north side to New Derby Street on the south side. It includes a section of the Essex Street pedestrian mall, all of Derby Square, and Artists’ Row. Except for Front Street at the lower end, the site is a pedestrian-only zone. The City is particularly interested in installations that have an impact when viewed across the site and that are effective at night as well as during the day. From this RFQ, three to five finalists will be invited to submit full proposals. Learn more.. 2. The second is a Call for Creative Entrepreneurs to participate in the twelfth season of Salem’s Artists’ Row, a seasonal program (May 19 –November 1, 2016) that provides space for artisans interested in building their audience through daily engagement with residents and visitors to Salem.
