Corrigan Station seeks creative artists

The Art in the Loop Foundation is scouring for artists to add vibrancy to Corrigan Station's new parking garage (pictured above right).

The developers of Corrigan Station are looking for an artist to help knit the project into the fabric of the surrounding creative arts district.

On behalf of the development team, the Art in the Loop Foundation is looking for an artist or architect team to create a permanent art installment for the new parking garage adjacent to the historic building. Located at 18th and Walnut in the Crossroads, the 277-stall garage will serve the 140,000 square feet of office, retail, and restaurants within Corrigan Station.

Developers hope the installation of an original art piece will connect the building to the physical and historic context of the area and the Corrigan Station project.

“One of our goals as developers is to really encompass the culture and aspects that give each of our neighborhoods its unique character,” said co-developer Vince Bryant of 3D Development. “We can’t wait to see what our talented community of artists will propose for this space.”

Due to the appropriate airflow that is required for the parking structure, the artist must create a piece that can achieve the greatest visual impact with little-to-no impact on air flow to maintain adequate garage ventilation.

“We are committed to supporting local artists and connecting the parking garage to the community by commissioning artwork for the exterior of the building," said Aaron Schlagel, director of development for Copaken Brooks.

The deadline for submissions is August 22. For more information on the request for qualifications, click here.
