Art should be literally or abstractly inspired by Springfield’s cultural and historical legacies, including past and/or present day residents, neighborhoods, cultural traditions and landmarks, places and landscapes, architecture, and other distinctive qualities that make the city a special place to live, work, and visit.

We encourage artists to utilize the theme in a way that ensures that Springfield residents are reflected in the artwork and have pride in the public art created through SPark!.

Q&A section: All questions must be submitted in writing to info@springfieldculture.org. In an effort to ensure that all interested parties have access to the same information, all questions and answers will be posted to the website.
