Leaning Tower Public Art Project

CALL FOR ARTIST: May 12 - June 1, 2021

The Village of Niles Public Arts & Culture Advisory Council in partnership with the Niles Chamber of Commerce and Industry is hosting a public art program to enhance the village and promote the arts. We invite any artist to submit designs for our iconic leaning towers. We want to display our local, artistic talent and give a platform for visitors, residents and shoppers to enjoy free art throughout town. We encourage creativity and originality.   

Artist Application and Design submissions are due: June 1, 2021. 

Artists may submit more than one design.

Not all designs will be selected. Artists must be willing to pick up leaning tower from Village Hall (1000 Civic Center Drive) and deliver completed leaning tower to its final location by July 19, 2021.  Artist will have approximately 4 weeks to complete. All selected artists will receive a $400 stipend upon completion and delivery of the final art piece.  Receipts for supplies can be submitted for reimbursement up to $100. Final leaning tower art pieces will be on display (inside and outdoor) in the community.
