Park Central Mural East— Finalists Announced!
Monday, December 3, 2018— The owners of the newly-renovated Park Central have partnered with Artlink Inc. to spearhead the development of an Arts and Culture Plan for their site. The first public art call stemming from this process was Park Central Mural East— a key feature on the east facing side of Park Central, near the main entrance from Central Avenue. This eye-catching mural will be an important amenity as it is a significant focal point of the entire project.
Today, we’re very pleased to announce the selected Finalists!
A private development, Park Central engaged several people connected to the project for the selection panel, including representatives from Plaza Companies, Holualoa Companies, DPR Construction and the Park Central Advisory Committee— a group made up of project leadership, industry professionals, and arts advocates and practitioners. Per the call’s stated criteria, finalists were chosen on “the quality, originality, and craftsmanship of their past works and potential to make a significant artistic contribution to this project”. Each finalist will be paid an honorarium to develop a site-specific proposal from which ONE artist and design will be chosen. The winning design will showcase the strength and feasibility of the proposed concept through a creative approach, as well as the design’s potential to engage tenants and visitors to Park Central in a meaningful way.
Congratulations, Jane, Andrew, and Lauren— the Finalists!
