Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field has issued a call to artists as part of its newly developed Art in the Airport program.

"This multiphased initiative will feature the work of talented artists to showcase the unique array of the state's natural beauty, arts and culture," the airport said in a statement announcing the initiative on its website.

The two artists who are selected will receive a $10,000 design fee. Separate budgets to be funded by the airport will be established for fabrication and installation of the artwork.

Up to three finalists will be selected to develop concept proposals for each of the two opportunities. Submissions for both opportunities are due Aug. 23.

To be considered for both projects, artists will have to apply for each opportunity separately. Eligible artists must currently reside in Arkansas or have lived, worked or studied in the state.

The terrazzo floor artwork project is for a site-specific artwork in the concourse exit area. The selected artist will create a custom design for the floor.

The airport also wants an artwork or installation on the curved wall in the concourse exit.

Selected artist, or artist team, will design custom artwork that will be fabricated from durable, low-maintenance materials.

Both projects "should celebrate the natural beauty of the region and welcome people to Little Rock and Arkansas," the airport said.
