The Lafayette Gateway is a centrally located round-about in Fairmount Park, one of many established neighborhoods in the City of Norfolk. Fairmount Park is a solid mixed income neighborhood with modest homes and tree-lined streets whose strong character is often overlooked. It is one of the most culturally, ethnically and generationally diverse and integrated neighborhoods in the city.

We hope the artwork will create an inspiring gateway that will evoke neighborhood pride, ownership and diversity. The goal of the Fairmount Park Neighborhood is to be a safe, aesthetically appealing, fiscally viable, family-oriented diverse and integrated community with excellent educational, social, recreational, and cultural opportunities, fostering a strong and diverse residential and business community with concern for ecological stewardship.

The Lafayette Gateway artwork should aspire to this goal.

Budget: $80,000

Deadline for Submission: 2:00 PM EST, October 15, 2016
