NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The Lafayette Fire Rescue Station public art committee is looking for an artist to create work of art at their new station.

The public artwork will be in the new Lafayette Fire Rescue Station #11 in Fairmount Park that will be replacing the second oldest station in Norfolk.

According to the application, the committee is looking for an artist to design and create artwork that will be large enough to be seen on the street that makes a strong statement and lives up to the quality of the new building design.

The budget for the project is set at $125,000 which will cover all of the artistic expenses, as well as travel expenses and final documentation.

Up to three finalists may be selected and will be interviewed about past work and creative process. Finalists will not be expected to complete a design at this stage.
