2018 City Church Art Competition

The City Church Art Competition (CCAC) gives artists an opportunity to create the first art installation to contribute to the City Church Ruin Garden Project. Because City Church’s structural condition is precarious, the winning proposal will be installed in an appropriate temporary location in Downtown Gary, as determined by the artist and the GRC. Once City Church is stabilized, the artwork will be permanently installed in the ruins garden.

Projects may be multi-disciplinary, multi-media, and/or collaborative. They may involve movement, sound, light, technology, and/or be multi-sensory, as long as it does not pose a threat to public safety.

One award will be given in the amount of $10,000.

All qualification materials must be submitted to no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 1, 2018.
