Underpass Design Competition Semi-Finalists Selected
The NoMa Parks Foundation has selected 49 semi-finalists to continue on to the next phase of the NoMa Underpass Design Competition. The competition’s prestigious jury is comprised of Elizabeth Broun, the Director of the Smithsonian American Art Museum; architect and columnist Roger Lewis; local artist Robin Rose; George Hemphill, local art curator/gallery owner and founding member of the District of Columbia Arts Center; and Charles “Sandy” Wilkes, Chair of the NoMa Parks Foundation, which is the sponsor of the competition.
The underpass competition seeks artists to install interactive installations in four underpasses at L, M, and K Streets, NE, and Florida Avenue, NE. The competition has generated overwhelming interest and excitement since its announcement in April. During the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) phase, the Foundation received 248 submissions from 14 countries, including a strong number of local entries. After a rigorous review, 49 semi-finalists now have four weeks to prepare their responses. Click here to view the full list of selected semi-finalists.
