The City of Tucson is seeking Artists and Artist teams to create public art in connection with Prop 407 park improvements for Tucson parks. The scope of work involves creating artwork in two City of Tucson parks, CSM Martin R. “Gunny” Barreras Memorial Park and Santa Rita Park. The selected Artist(s) will be responsible for designing and fabricating artwork under the guidance of the Public Art Project Panel assembled for this project. The selected Artists(s) will be required to provide professional construction design plans to the City of Tucson for approval prior to fabrication. The artwork should reflect the culture and aesthetics of the community to promote distinctive neighborhood identities. Representatives of each community will be involved in the design process.

The all-inclusive final budget of $72,602 for artwork(s) must cover any and all costs related to the design, fabrication and all fees of the artwork(s) in the two parks. This amount is expected to cover the Artist fee and all costs associated with the design and fabrication of the artwork(s) including but not limited to insurance, tax, mileage, research, community engagement, panel meetings, engineering plans, and all fabrication materials and labor expenses. This is the total design budget for both parks.
