Calling All Artists



Downtown Lynchburg Association and Riverviews Artspace are seeking design proposals for the “Art on the Fence” project. This project will transform construction fencing around the Main Street Renewal project into public art, turning a challenge into an opportunity for beauty and culture. Artists are asked to submit completed art designs that depict or interpret Downtown Lynchburg. Chosen designs will be printed on 4 foot tall vinyl banners and hung on Main Street construction fencing from November 1 - February 29. Proposed designs must conform to a 7.5’ x 4’ landscape aspect ratio. Strong preference will be given to Lynchburg area artists. Artwork must be original. Downtown Lynchburg Association reserves the right to reproduce final designs.

Five proposals will be selected and awarded a $250 honorarium to support its conceptualization, creation, and installment.

Proposals due by October 30. Submissions can be sent to and should include:

  • Digital artwork file

  • Name of artwork

  • Year of artwork creation (optional)

  • Artist name

  • Contact phone

  • Contact email

Art on the Fence is made possible with support from Appalachian Power and the City of Lynchburg Arts & Cultural District Program.
