ARTIST RENDERING FOR FRISCO DOWNTOWN GATEWAY MARKER
CALL FOR ENTRIES
The Frisco Downtown Merchants Association, in partnership with Frisco Association for the Arts, is seeking artistic renderings depicting a Downtown Gateway Marker, a possible large scale structure, on Main Street in Frisco, TX, which will serve to establish Downtown Frisco as a destination.
The purpose of the call is to receive rendering for a Downtown Gateway Marker to be presented to city planners for future consideration and facilitate the conversation. This project is not sanctioned by the City of Frisco, but is a citizen-driven effort by private partners to distinguish Historic Downtown Frisco as a true destination.
The renderings should reflect Frisco’s heritage and history, helping to create downtown as a destination. Ideally, the structure should also allow for a way to communicate information about downtown events.
Although submissions will not be used as construction documents and are intended only as a source of inspiration, entries that demonstrate a knowledge of realistic construction practices and the City of Frisco’s planning and permitting process will have an advantage.
While no specific site has been selected, the desired general location is on Main Street between County Road to the east and 1st Street to the west. The specific site(s) or art location(s) are open to the artist’s discretion and vision. The site should be open to the public, visibly and recognizably in Downtown Frisco. Downtown Frisco is considered the area from 8020 Main Street to the former silos/railroad tracks, and 2 blocks south of Main, 1 block north of Main.
