DRC Public Art Project

Overview

The Downtown Racine Corporation's 20th annual public art project will feature 25 decorated bistro table and chairs sets, which will be displayed and available for use throughout Downtown Racine from June through mid-September.

The DRC's choice of functional art for this year's project was guided not only with the desire to beautify downtown, but also to help with the added need for outdorr seating and dining due to the pandemic.

The DRC is currently seeking 25 artists to create unique, kid-and-family-friendly designs that will adorn the table and chairs. Selected artists will receive $100 for supplies. All artists will have a photo of their table set posted on DRC's website (www.racinedowntown.com) and included in a walking tour brochure. A plaque will also be attached to the table to recognize the artist and sponsor's names.

Fan favorite voting will take place all summer and the winner of that contest will receive a $100 downtown gift certificate. Artist applications can be found at www.racinedowntown.com. Applications are due by February 28, 2021.
