LANSING, Mich., Feb. 23, 2012 – The Arts Council of Greater Lansing is currently seeking proposals from its membership to create a commissioned artwork that honors the legacy of local artist and financial advisor, Christopher Daniel Clark, for permanent display at the Arts Council.  Proposals should outline how the artwork intends to capture Chris' likeness, his humor, his spirit, his passion for the community, and his love of the arts, especially music.  A full biography and detailed proposal requirements can be found on the Arts Council’s website,  Proposals are due to the Arts Council office by 5 p.m. on March 15, 2012.  


A panel of qualified professionals convened by the Arts Council will review proposals and will recommend a finalist.  The finalist will be notified by March 30 and will be supplied with photographs and other information necessary to produce the artwork.  Detailed sketches or a scale model will be required for display at an event held in downtown Lansing on April 23, 2012 from 5-7 p.m. honoring Clark.  The artist producing the commissioned artwork will also be asked to be present at the event.
