Foundation Seeks Artist/Designer for Donor Recognition Banners


Calling All Artists: Public Art Opportunity RFQ

Public Art Opportunity: Donor Recognition Banners RFQ

The Lotus Education and Arts Foundation is seeking artists to design, coordinate, and manage a project involving Donor Recognition Banners. They encourage artists and designers to submit qualifications to be considered as a vendor for a permanent hanging banner installation to recognize their major donors in our new multi-use community venue. The colorful banners will hang from the ceiling to enliven the newly renovated space while honoring the supporters who helped make the new venue a reality.

Lotus has a budget of $16,500 for this project, which must cover all associated expenses including design, fabrication, materials, labor, and installation. Lotus shall retain the right to update or recreate the selected banner designs as needed (e.g. to honor new donors), as well as to reproduce them for its nonprofit uses such as brochures, publicity and marketing materials, and website publication.

Lotus produces a major five-day festival, the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival, in Bloomington, Indiana, each year. Annual programming also encompasses live performances, arts education, and outreach throughout the year in schools and community spaces. In 2018, Lotus will complete a capital campaign to renovate a decommissioned firehouse. The organization could not have developed this new multi-use art and performance space without many generous donors, who Lotus now wishes to honor in this newly renovated community space.
