With the Art on the Ave 2016 selection process closed (9/18/2015), the Art on the Ave Committee reviewed several submissions from a group of qualified applicants, and narrowed down a list of finalist based on the criteria the committee asked for. The winning applicant for 2016 is Joe & Nicole Nurmi on the 800 block of 7th Ave SE. The Nurmi’s are newer to the neighborhood and are excited to be the 2016 Host, and are willing to take on the AoA Host Responsibilities. A special thanks to all those who applied this year, we had a great pool of households who applied, and we encourage people to re-apply again next year.
The host selected theme for this year is “DANCE” which will guide artist in the design of the sculpture that will be permanently installed on the host boulevard. An RFP(request for proposal) will be sent to artist in the next month to start the process.
