The call opens until January 7, 2018, the IDB said.

“Participating artworks should reflect one of the following development challenges in the region: diversity and inclusion, innovation, economic growth and globalization, gender equality, environmental sustainability and justice,” the IDB said.

It said the winning proposals will be displayed in “Sidewalk of the Americas,” a public art installation comprising over 150 artworks.

“The installation aims to provoke audiences to think of a dynamic and united region betting on disruptive change and the role of art and creativity in development,” the IDB said.
