Northglenn, CO Seeks Sculptures for Permanent Installation




Northglenn Arts and Humanities Foundation (NAHF), acting on behalf of the City of Northglenn, Colorado, invites proposals from artists (individual or teams) to design, fabricate, and install a series of sculptures on four existing sculpture pads for the new Webster Lake Promenade. The successful proposal for the commissioned, site-specific, permanent art installation will include details of the design, fabrication, and installation of artwork.

Budget: $100,000 inclusive of fabrication, travel, transportation and installation

Eligibility:  Artists over 18 and working in the United States

Project Description
The selected artist or team will design, fabricate and install the sculptures for the four pads detailed on the map.

Proposals must include the medium/materials/application technique to be used to create a durable installation. No hanging sculptures, wooden sculptures, or water features.

Multiple proposals are allowed. You must create a Café profile and registration for each proposal. Each proposal allows for images and video.

Artwork Location Description
The sculpture pads are 9’10” diameter circles made of poured concrete. Four light fixtures per pad are installed with electricity. Fixtures are 6’4″ across from each other. The existing lighting can be used, changed or removed. No height restrictions.
