MCC Seeks Artists for 50th Anniversary Public Art Projects

McLean Community Center (MCC) is accepting qualifications from artists or artist teams for two public art projects it is commissioning in McLean.

The two public art projects are part of the center’s 50th Anniversary celebration, which will take place in 2025. The first project is a mural to be created for the rear wall of the Old Firehouse Center (OFC), located at 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. The second project is a typographical sculpture to be placed on the rear plaza of MCC, which is located at 1234 Ingleside Ave.

The application period opens today, July 3, 2024, and closes on August 16, 2024, with finalists being notified in mid-September.

All interested artists should submit an application with the preliminary submission materials: a statement of interest, resume, images of past work and professional references. Applications must be submitted through the CaFÉ portal by August 16, 2024.
