The City of Moscow and the Moscow Arts Commission seek three-dimensional artworks for a one-year installation at the Intermodal Transit Center Sculpture Garden. Proposals will be accepted via Submittable until 5 p.m. on Friday, April 19, 2024. 

All submissions will be reviewed by a selection panel and up to four sculptures will be selected for installation. Each selected artwork will be installed in the Sculpture Garden through May 2025, and each artist will receive an honorarium of $800 for the loan of their artwork.

The full project description and submission requirements are available here:


The Intermodal Transit Center (ITC) was built by the City of Moscow in 2012 as a one-stop concept for transportation in the community. The ITC provides access for taxis, vanpools and carpools while expanding pedestrian and bicyclist access to Paradise Path. In 2015, the City of Moscow Arts Department developed the Sculpture Garden as an opportunity for public art viewing as well as an exhibition space for regional artists.

Public art is at the heart of Moscow’s creative culture, and with a collection including works by local and regional artists, its public spaces reflect the Inland Northwest’s tradition of artistic excellence. Artworks range from sculptures and murals to framed pieces in the City’s portable collection. Temporary artworks include vinyl-wrapped utility boxes, storm drain murals, and bus shelters as well as sculptures at the Intermodal Transit Center on the University of Idaho campus.

The City of Moscow’s acquisition of public art began in the 1980s, and is supported by a 1% for the Arts fund established by ordinance in 2004. A Public Art Master Plan guides the Moscow Arts Commission, Arts staff, and community members as they incorporate new works into the City’s landscape.

Moscow is rich with diversity of thought, inhabited by minds open to possibility and creative interpretation. As such, the public art program celebrates the artist as a professional and valued business partner while welcoming a broad range of media and art-making processes into its collection.
