The City of Bozeman, Gender Equality Montana and the Downtown Bozeman Partnership are pleased to announce the completion of a public art installation created by local artists designed to provide a space for celebrating the LGBTQ+ community in Downtown Bozeman.
Intersection(al) Art features a splash of color around pedestrian crossings located at the curb bulb-outs at the intersection of Black and Babcock Avenues. The purpose of the project is to symbolize the communities’ continued commitment to inclusivity, provide a platform for queer artists to showcase their work, and improve the visibility and safety of pedestrians crossing a high traffic area.
Local artists and members of the LGBTQ+ community responded to a call to art and submitted design concepts, artists statements and an implementation plan for review by the City of Bozeman, Gender Equality Montana and the Downtown Bozeman Partnership. The designs were narrowed down to four and nearly 400 community members then voted on their favorite design through the City’s Engage Bozeman platform.
The project was made possible by the City of Bozeman, Gender Equality Montana, and the Downtown Bozeman Partnership.
