The City of Tulsa is accepting submissions from professional artists or teams of artists in response to a significant public art opportunity relating to the City’s recent investments at the Mission Training Center near Tulsa International Airport.
Budget: $50,000 (includes foundation/base)
Eligibility: Professional artists
Optional Informational Conference Call: RSVP to John Paganelli by 5 PM CDT Tue, June 2nd, 2020: email@example.com
or by phone, (918) 579-9455
This Call to Artists seeks to identify artist teams or artists capable of designing, fabricating, and installing a sculptural installation commemorating the Oklahoma Air National Guard, its 138th Fighter Wing, and Technical Sergeant Marshal (Moo) Dakota Roberts, who “…died in combat on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 while deployed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve in Iraq.”
The installation should serve as a photo opportunity for park visitors and passersby. The installation should also commemorate and make space available for the continued dedication and sacrifices made by the 138th Fighter Wing’s servicemembers.
Artwork Location Description
The project site is located near the intersection of E 46th Street North and N 145th E Ave in Tulsa. The high-security nature of the Mission Training Center has necessitated the placement of the related public art at an aviation viewing lot just north of Tulsa International Airport’s main runway, a highly visible location in Tulsa.
All submitted materials will initially be reviewed by the Steering Committee. Up to five candidates may be shortlisted and interviewed prior to and/or during final selection. Artists will present final concepts to the Steering Committee, which will formally recommend a selected artist to the Arts Commission, which advises the Mayor of the City of Tulsa on final approval. The selected artist(s) will be expected to work with stakeholders to integrate artwork into the final design, ensuring that all opportunities for leveraging the budget have been fully explored and exploited. During this phase, the artist may be required to attend (possibly via conference calls) public information sessions and/or Steering Committee meeting(s). Once the design is accepted by the Mayor, the artist(s) will be responsible for obtaining the appropriate permits for the project’s installation.
