BANGOR, Maine — Calling all artists! The City of Bangor announced Tuesday afternoon a call for artist proposals for an original installation on the Davis Brook Stack, according to a Twitter post.
The selected proposal will be awarded $10,000 in funding for their contribution, materials, and time. The submission deadline is July 27.
The city says the theme of the project is "The Penobscot River."
The selected proposal will aim to honor the Penobscot River and its cultural, historical, and environmental impact, and consider long-term relevance and compatibility with the site.
The river flows alongside the Davis Brook Stack site and holds major cultural and historical significance for the Penobscot Nation and to the city as a whole.
The Davis Brook Stack is a part of the Davis Brook Combined Sewer Overflow Storage Tank constructed in May.
The Davis Brook Stack's concrete footing measures six feet tall by six feet in diameter, topped with a 16 foot tall by four foot diameter ductile iron pipe, ending with a stainless-steel cap.
The City of Bangor clarifies that selected artwork may be affixed to the stack by means of anchors or bolts, epoxy adhesives, and other alternatives.
