A chance to put yourself on the map. Literally.

The Bushkill Creek Corridor Council for the Arts is now soliciting proposals for environmentally based sculpture intended for the Karl Stirner Arts Trail.

Proposals will be exhibited at Lafayette College’s Grossman Gallery in July. Then, one submitted proposal (chosen by popular vote) will be selected for a one-year installation on the Karl Stirner Arts Trail in 2016.

Our artist invitation contains all the pertinent details but here’s the most important one — the submission deadline is April 1, 2015. No fooling.

Proposals can be submitted via e-mail to toiaj@lafayette.edu

Thank you for your interest and support of the Karl Stirner Arts Trail!

Attached is a copy of the initial public presentation for the 13th Street Corridor Concept Study. This is a planning level effort which is intended to collect data, obtain public input, analyze results, and then seek alternatives for future funding and implementation. The project contains three main focus points: 13th Street from Northampton Street to Bushkill Drive, the Interchange with Route 22, and the off-road trail connections in and around the corridor. It is anticipated that this will be a multi-year process which will likely occur in phases.
