You will usually find the posting(s) listed just as the employer or organizer has sent it/them to me. Just click on the link (in blue), if you are interested. Check back often, as you never know when a new opportunity will be listed.

- Tailored training sessions to enhance business practices, including the production of a business and marketing plan.

Abenaki people and Friends please pass this on to any Abenaki sculptors or muralists that you know who might want to present a proposal to Burlington City Arts for public art at the Burlington International Airport or in the new downtown Burlington City Project. Wouldn’t it be great if Abenaki heritage, history and tradition – and design – were represented as part of these projects?

DEADLINE FOR EACH ONE IS SEPTEMBER 22, 2023
Burlington City Arts
Burlington International Airport Project
Burlington International Airport (BTV) is excited to partner with BCA on a call-to-artists for a new permanent artwork at the airport. The work will be created on a substrate and installed in a second-floor hallway, part of the newly opened TSA area. This installation will celebrate Burlington and Vermont’s ongoing commitment to innovation, equity, and environmental sustainability as well as the stunning natural beauty that defines our region. The deadline for submitting qualifications is September 22, 2023, 11:59 PM EDT. If you have questions, please email Jessica Manley at [email protected].
CityPlace Streetscape Project
As part of the ongoing Great Streets Initiative, the CityPlace Streetscape Project seeks to incorporate public art into the streetscape surrounding the new mixed-use facility. This call to artists specifically aims to attract applicants who identify as Black or brown, historically marginalized or disenfranchised individuals, or individuals who may not have had access to traditional arts education and training and are looking to add public art project experience to their portfolio. The deadline for submitting qualifications is September 22, 2023, 11:59 PM EDT. If you have questions, please email Colin Storrs at [email protected].
