The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture’s Public Art Program is requesting qualifications from experienced professional artists to create a signature work for a new concourse in Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s Terminal Four. The site offers the opportunity for an artist to create a significant, large-scale work suspended or integrated into the ceiling. It will be viewed from multiple perspectives inside and outside the terminal. The concourse design highlights the airport’s unique location in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, providing unobstructed window views of the mountain ranges south of the city. The selected artist(s) will be expected to create works that take advantage of the terminal’s natural light. The selected artist will be required to work closely with the design team to integrate the artwork into the terminal design and construction documents.
This is a fast-track project. Design and engineering are anticipated to take place from April through August 2019. Concourse construction is expected to begin in 2019 and conclude in 2022.
Applicants to this project may be considered for additional public art project opportunities advertised by the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture in the coming year.
A selection panel will be convened by the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture. Members of the panel will include artists, arts professionals, city staff, and community members. Non-voting advisors to the panel may include additional city staff. The panel will review the work of all applicants before recommending finalists. The selection panel will have the authority to invite finalists to be interviewed or to develop concepts for the projects.
At the first selection panel meeting, finalists are selected from the pool of applicants using a 20-point system. The scoring will be based upon the following distribution of possible points:
After evaluating submissions, the City, at the request of the Evaluation Committee, may ask some or all of the Respondents to submit supplemental information and concepts, or to participate in interviews.
If the Evaluation Committee recommends holding a second stage of the selection process, qualified applicants (“Finalists”) will be evaluated on the basis of a 20-point system. Finalists will be given approximately four weeks to produce a proposal, and will be given detailed information on selection criteria for each opportunity. Finalists will receive an honorarium for their proposals, the amount and nature of which honorarium will be determined by the City in its sole and absolute discretion. Finalists will be expected to present their proposal to the selection panel before the panel recommends artists for the commissions. Finalists will be scored, and awards will be recommended, based upon the following distribution of possible points:
The final recommendation(s) of the selection panel will be reviewed by the Public Art Committee; the Phoenix Arts and Culture Commission; a subcommittee of the City Council; and the Mayor and City Council prior to the award of contract.
