Developer TWG seeks an artist to create public art for Rise on Meridian, a new mixed-use project currently under construction at 915 S. Meridian St. The intended artwork will be placed outdoors in an open landscape area facing S. Meridian St. Another possibility is to create a sculptural artwork that also functions as a fence for the planned dog park. This project is part of the City of Indianapolis’ Public Art for Neighborhoods program, and the artwork will reflect the history and diversity of its Southside neighborhood.
ELIGIBILITY: Artists over 18 living in Marion or its 7 surrounding counties. Preferred qualifications include artists who have previously created large-scale public art and who have experience working in a community process.
BUDGET: $86,600 (all-inclusive)
DEADLINE: Apply by May 26, 2023
PROJECT COMPLETION: on or before June 1, 2024
See attached complete RFQ document with site plans and images.
The artwork is intended to be long-lasting, easily maintained, and inspire additional public art in the immediate area of S. Meridian St.
Once the qualifications materials are received from interested artists, TWG will review the applications and make recommendations. TWG will notify the selected artist and conduct a mandatory workshop to inform them about issues relating to the program. The artist will then develop a
specific proposal based on interaction with TWG and discussions with the community.
TWG will select artists based upon the following criteria:
