Invitation to Bid – Request for Expressions of Interest

The City of Bridgeport and the Bridgeport Downtown Special Services District (DSSD) are calling artists to Downtown Bridgeport. We are already “Colorful Bridgeport,” and YOU can make it more so by sharing your skill, your imagination, and your inspiration to help transform the city’s center into an expression of art itself.

Thanks to our private partners, we have twelve building walls ready to go. We’re open to all ideas and to all formats and media that you might propose: paintings, drawings, prints, panels, photographs, projected images, lighted, interactive, immersive, three-dimensional, animated, sculpted, electronic, web-based, even performance-based.

Interested parties may download the complete Call for Artists from our website here, or request a printed copy by contacting the offices of the DSSD: 938 Broad Street, Bridgeport, Connecticut 06604. Call us on (203) 908-3622 or send an email here. We will be hosting an information session and walk of the various sites on Friday, April 15, 2022 from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Contact Julio Pardo at to RSVP. We’re taking expressions of interest on a rolling basis until Thursday, May 12, 2022 at 2:00pm.
