Metropolitan Community College in Fort Omaha, Nebraska, is seeking public art for its new campus expansion.
The desired artwork is a large exterior sculpture, installation, or environmental public art project. The proposed site of the commissioned artwork is in the highly visible central courtyard, with a base area spanning approximately 8 x 8 ft. However, the site could incorporate the entire 120 x 120 ft. courtyard. The work will represent the movement from a historic fort to a 21st Century learning environment while honoring donors and providing an identity for the expansion project on campus. Most importantly, the committee is seeking artists who can design, in an engaging manner, innovative, thought-provoking projects that relate to the proposed space.
Eligibility: All professional public artists or artist teams from throughout the United States. Artists from diverse backgrounds and Nebraska artists are encouraged to apply. Artists are allowed to apply in teams. Artists applying as a team must split the allotted number of work examples between themselves.
MCC is moving forward with community partners to expand facilities and prepare students for the workforce by creating a place where business and education thrive together. The Fort Omaha Campus will be home to three new academic centers: the Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology (CAET), the Construction Education Center (CEC), and the Academic Skills Center.
Selections will be made solely by the MCC Public Art Committee, composed of staff and community representatives in consultation with the Nebraska Arts Council. The committee will review submissions from this RFQ and choose three shortlisted artists to present proposals.
The following factors will be considered when reviewing RFQ submissions:
