Call to Artists for Veterans Park Public Art Project
CALL TO REGIONAL ARTISTS
Veterans Park Public Art Project
Request for Qualifications
Deadline October 31, 2012 at 5:00 pm
The City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD), Public Art Program, invites regional artists living within a 300-mile radius to submit qualifications to create an exterior three-dimensional memorial that pays tribute to the El Paso Veterans of Foreign Wars at Veterans Park located at 5301 Salem Dr.
Those with previous experience or interest in outdoor installations are encouraged to apply. Selected artist or artist team will work to design, fabricate and install an outdoor, site-specific, three dimensional tribute to the El Paso Veterans of Foreign Wars. Artists are also encouraged to depict El Paso’s history, character, diversity, and cultural identity. Total project budget is $50,000 to include design, fabrication, and installation.
There will be a total of three semi-finalists selected to submit a Request for Proposals (RFP) to realistically develop the proposed memorial. Artists will be asked to work with City officials and community stakeholders to assist in the development of public art at Veterans Park. Factors that should be considered in the design include day and night viewing visibility, color, light, and interactive components. Proposals will need project description, an itemized budget outline, project illustrations (drawings, renderings and-or maquette), and maintenance guidelines. Honorarium for RFP will be provided.
