The City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program, through the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) announces a $13,000 competition to commission a site-specific artwork for Hayes Recreation Center. This commission is part of the $1.3 million renovation at Hayes Recreation Center by Councilman O’Neil’s Office, the Bustleton Bengals Club, and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation.

The Percent for the Art Program and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation seek to commission a high quality, original site-specific artwork that celebrates the life of Police officer John Marynowitz, as well as the Bustleton community. The north exterior wall of the Recreation Center, facing President’s Street, has been identified as the public art site. Presently, there is a mural honoring Officer Robert Hayes on the east wall of the existing building. More information, as well as a site visit, will be given at the Pre-Proposal Meeting.
