ArtCurrents is popular public art placement program in which the City, in essence, leases pieces of art for use in downtown Coeur d'Alene and the Riverstone area.

The City of Coeur d’Alene Arts Commission seeks artists annually to participate in its “ArtCurrents” program.    ArtCurrents pieces are displayed along Sherman Avenue, Lakeside Avenue, City Park, Atlas Waterfront Park, and the Riverstone area.  Artists submit applications for placement of their sculptures for a period of one (1) year, with an option to renew for a second year.  The selected artists or artists teams will be paid a stipend of $1,000.00 for the first year.  A second stipend of $1,000.00 will be paid to the artists at the start of the second year.  The displayed works are offered for sale, with the City of Coeur d’Alene receiving a 25% commission from the sale.

The next call will be published during the summer of 2023 through the CaFÉ website (
