The cities of Loveland and Fort Collins, Colorado, seek submissions to select an artist/artist team to design art concepts for a Police Regional Training Institute. This Request for Qualifications is a collaborative effort between both cities’ Art in Public Places programs.
Eligibility: Professional visual artists
Deadline: 12/02/2018 11:59 PM Central Time
The Police Regional Training Institute will be located along Boyd Lake Avenue, near the Loveland/Fort Collins Airport. Construction for this facility is expected to begin in January 2019, with a completion date of March 2020. This facility will have little or no general public accessibility; however, it will be visible from the road. The Police Regional Training Institute envelops a 44.608 acre campus located within the Northern Colorado Regional Airport property, and shall include the construction of a 1.4 mile driving pursuit track, an indoor 50 yard shooting range, 400’x600’ skills/skid pad and auxiliary support infrastructure.
The selected artist/artist team will be paid an hourly rate to develop and attend Project Design Team meetings. The selected artist/artist team will identify the most appropriate and visible locations for their public art and develop artwork that:
The initial impressions shared by the Project Design Team are for artistic designs upon the security gates and/or the front building facade; however, the finalist(s) are encouraged to interpret the site as desired.
An artist/artist team may be selected directly from the initial applications based upon the artist’s public art experience and artwork images. Both cities reserve the right to reject all proposals and to waive irregularities or informalities. The artist/artist team will present a formal proposal of their design concepts to the Artworks Selection Panel in March 2019. The presentation must include a detailed budget for their design elements. While it is our intention, there is no guarantee that the selected artist’s design concepts will be accepted for fabrication and installation. The final design concept will need to go through an approval process.Members of the City of Loveland Visual Arts Commission and the Fort Collins Art in Public Places Board and four members of the Project Design Team will review and vote on the applicants and design concepts for this project.
The primary criteria for selection are:
