The Mercer University Art Department seeks submissions for an exhibition of temporary public art titled “Art in the Park: New Forms from the Southeast”. The show will be on display for five months in the historic Tattnall Square Park, across the street from Mercer University’s Campus in Macon, Georgia. The show will feature contemporary art from new and emerging artists who are working in the Southeast region of the United States and who create work that is built for outdoors and public interaction.
The show is the first of a two year long series of temporary public art shows that will feature national and regional artists. The Art in the Park program is funded by the Knight Foundation through a Knight Neighborhood Challenge grant.
