Artists are invited to propose a public artwork to be placed in Cooper Park in the City of Dayton, Ohio. This privately funded, city-owned artwork is intended to communicate the value of public service. The call for entries and project implementation are managed by Build Art In, LLC. The project budget is $50,000, all-inclusive.
This artwork should reflect the distinctive orientation toward public service. It is important that the viewer is able to discern the subject. A directly narrative and representational iteration is not required but would be acceptable. Proposals for community-oriented and collaborative projects are welcome.
The selected potential site(s) for artwork will be located outdoors in a public urban park with mature trees, sidewalks and new play equipment. The centerpiece of the park is a bronze statue of William McKinley, erected in 1910. The new sculpture should be created in relationship to these other elements and must be durable and easily maintained, on a substantial, professionally poured foundation that extends at least 12 inches beyond any part of the sculpture. It cannot be sited directly under a tree or in a way that damages tree roots. If designed to be interactive/accessible, meeting ADA requirements may be required.
Proposals will only be accepted electronically, in the form of a single PDF of no more than 10 MB. All proposals will be acknowledged. Maquettes may be requested; if so, a stipend will be offered and a presentation date will be scheduled.
Proposals must include the following:
This opportunity will remain open until an artist and project are chosen and commissioned.
