The mayor's office says it will solicit artists to create artwork for the municipal building going into the old Ferdinand site in Dudley Square.
The city has a $500,000 budget - $300,000 from city coffers, the rest to be raised from private donors - for the work, which will include "an outdoor sculptural piece at the project's southeast corner, adjacent to the MBTA bus stop" and "a painted or sculptural element to adorn the old brick wall of the Wasserman building, which will be in a vestibule enclosed in glass."
BPS students will get the chance to design "a decorative acoustic panel covering to hang in the School Committee Room" in the building, into which the school department will move from its current Court Street offices.
