ELEVATE: Cultural Capital Pyramid Project Request for Qualifications

Good Afternoon,

I’ve attached three more artist calls we would love shared with the community. We are looking for an Interior Designer, Signage Artist, and an Artisan to bring the Pyramid Food Gallery Project to life.

The Pyramid Food Gallery will re-imagine a black owned community grocery store and examine how art and design can transform the way a community experiences space.  The aim of the project is to confront issues of food deserts by re-imagining a local corner store as a source of fresh food as well as a space of beauty.

Featuring an interior redesign by chosen interior designers, signage artist, and artisan — who will work alongside the store owner, the curatorial team, and the Office of Cultural Affairs collaboratively to creative a unique visual language.

The Pyramid Project is this year’s ELEVATE theme “cultural capital” embodied, as it is both a long-term physical investment in a community business and a cultural investment in creating an experience of community nourishment. The imagined possibilities for the space will consider both the civic needs of the community as well as the artistic intentions of the business owner. Most importantly the Pyramid Project emphasizes a necessity of investment in people, the most essential community nourishment there is.

Feel free to reach out with any questions.

Thank you,
