Pro Bono and Discounted Engineering Services for Sculpture

   

Rbhu Relief Program for Artists 

Rbhu is a small engineering company that is driven by creativity and positive impact. They are seeking to provide the artist community with $30k worth of engineering services, so artists can again create and help lift the human spirit

We have all been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the uncertainty and the anxiety brought with it, sadness for what we have lost, and grief for those who have suffered. At Rbhu, they believe that art plays a key role in lifting the human spirit; it ignites our imagination with possibilities, it helps us process and express our feelings, and it brings people together for a collective cause. They believe that monumental sculptures have the power to help heal wounds. That is why they want to do their part and support the artist community by offering $30k worth of engineering services, so artists can again create and help lift the human spirit. As we pick-up the pieces from this crisis, let’s build something beautiful from it.

What they are offering: Structural or mechanical engineering services for any size artwork, which can include analysis, construction drawings, and permit documents, depending on the project needs. Offerings will be broken down as follows:

  • One full pro-bono project (up to $15,000 in free services)
  • One project with 50% discounted services (up to $7,500 in free services)
  • One project with 50% discounted services (up to $5,000 in free services)
  • One project with 50% discounted services (up to $2,500 in free services)

What they’re looking for:

Any art piece that needs engineering services is eligible for this program. We want to get a good idea of your concept so that we understand how we can best help you. Please answer the questions as best as you can. If we need additional information, we will reach out and ask you.

What you need to provide:

  • A completed application
  • Visual representation of your concept (this can be anything from a napkin sketch to a 3D model. If you don’t have your idea fully flushed out yet, that’s OK, just let them know in your application)

Important dates:

  • June 1st: Applications close
  • June 15th: Selected projects are chosen and applicants are notified

Other important information:

Rbhu is licensed in several states in the U.S. and always looking for a reason to expand that list, even to outside the country, so don’t let location stop you from applying.

If you’d like for your project to be confidential, please state so on your application. They will respect confidentiality if requested. If an NDA is needed, please email us at rhugivesback@rbhu.org with the NDA attached.

They will never share your personal information.

If you have any questions, please email rbhugivesback@rbhu.org.
