January Call to Artists

REDMOND COMMISSION FOR ART IN PUBLIC PLACES

The City of Redmond’s Commission for Art in Public Places (RCAPP) invites artists and artist teams to submit proposals to design and produce a solar, backlit, public art piece for the Highway 97 retaining wall as you enter Redmond from the north. This project is meant to serve as a welcoming gateway to Redmond. The project budget is up to $45,000 for the design, fabrication and installation of the public art.
A committee will evaluate all proposals based on overall strength of design concept, sustainability and durability of the design, applicant experience, and completeness of the proposal.
Background: The Highway 97 is Redmond’s gateway and front door for most visitors approaching from the north or south into Redmond. Approaching Redmond from the north there is virtually no landscaping or other features to give passers-by an indication that they are arriving into Redmond. As part of the Highway 97 Beautification Plan attractive entries have been created to draw visitors off the highway and into the City Center Downtown area. We would like to add a backlit, wall mounted sculpture to the retaining wall of the Negus Street overpass. The retaining wall has approximately 92 feet in length of visible space from the highway and is approximately 15 feet in height. The sculpture should be inviting to visitors and improve the open space of Highway 97.
Eligibility: This Request for Proposals is open to all artists residing in the Northwest United States, specifically Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Entrants may be individuals or artist teams.
The deadline for installation is October 30, 2017. Responses are due by 4pm, February 15, 2017. Please contact Jackie Abslag at 541-923-7763, Jaclyn.abslag@ci.redmond.or.us.
