To access application, go to and look for “City of El Paso Zoo-Plaza and Event Tent Project”

About the Project

As part of the 2012 Quality of Life bond issuance, one of the first substantial projects at the Zoo is a Plaza and Event Tent. The Event Tent is planned to include a stage, dance floor, seating area and an indoor bar to host bands, movie night, corporate gatherings, and weddings. The Plaza Area will serve as a gathering space to include an outdoor bar, landscaping and a water feature to host receptions.

The artist or artist team will be selected to design, influence, and enhance various aspects of the Plaza gathering area to seamlessly integrate art into the architectural and landscape design with both large and small gestures to set the ambiance in the space.


All interested artists are encouraged to apply and review further details of the RFQ at and submit application by August 14th by 5:00pm MST.
