Talk about enriching a community through a unique voice, creating civic engagement, cultivating conversation, honoring voices, and creating beauty and connection.

Art in public places catches the eye, adding a unique energy that cultivates a better place to live.  It gives artists a voice and outlet for flowing creativity, and invites others into their world while making a statement and creating curiosity within a community.

3S Artspace in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is working on a project that can only see completion with the help of many artist voices. That's where you, or artists in your life, come in.

According to 3S Artspace's Instagram, they want to commission a team of artists for a near and dear project that will honor the life, legacy, and vision of a supporter of 3S Artspace and the Portsmouth cultural community as a whole.

In honor of the life, legacy, and vision of Mark Stebbins, the Family, and Friends of Mark Stebbins seek to commission an artist, or team of artists, to create an original, site-specific sculpture at 145 Maplewood Avenue in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We want this sculpture, and the surrounding area, to be a site where you can spend a quiet moment feeling your spirit lifted by the things that gave Mark such joy in life: water, light, and the natural spectacle of the daily sunset.

If you're not familiar with 3S Artspace, it describes itself online as a nonprofit contemporary arts organization and performance space with a large contemporary art gallery. It's also a restaurant partner, creating an ideal gathering place for everyone.
