The City of Peoria is seeking artist submittals for its latest public art project at Happy Valley Road and Lake Pleasant Parkway (Northeast side of intersection).
Budget: $140,000 (for artwork and related)
Eligibility: (none indicated) Artists are allowed to apply in teams. Artists applying as a team must split the allotted number of work examples between themselves.
Deadline: 07/07/2017 11:59 PM Central Time
The ideal artist should thrive on the challenge of creating exterior artwork that complements the environment of the designated location. The artist should also consider the vast view of this location from a distance, both daytime and nighttime. The height of the piece will be a strong consideration when choosing the final submission. This location has a very high volume of traffic passing it from the Loop 303 on their way to Lake Pleasant. One artist will be awarded the project, however, the agency may choose an additional artist for another project within the next 12 months based on the applications to this call.
The Peoria Arts Commission has established a selection committee to review the submitted application materials and provide the Commission with a recommendation. The Commission will review the committee’s suggestions and then make its project recommendations to the full City Council for action. The general public will have an opportunity to view and comment on finalists’ proposals which will be on physical display at City Hall, 8401 W. Monroe Street, Peoria, AZ 85345 and on the City’s web pages and social media from.
The selection committee will invite up to three semi-finalists to develop complete proposals. Prior to submitting proposals, semi-finalists are welcome to visit the site visit to obtain a better understanding about the project. Proposals should include drawings, model, plus specific information on scale, medium, installation, and complete budget. Semi-finalists are also required to make a presentation of their final proposals. Each semi-finalist will receive a stipend to help compensate for out-of-pocket costs associated with the competition. The stipend can reimburse proposal-related costs such as models, drawings, and travel to Peoria.
Criteria for evaluating the finalists’ proposals are as follows:
A. Artistic merit and quality of artwork
B. Artist’s past experience or “track record” of producing commissions of similar size, scope, cost, artistic media, etc.
C. Likelihood that the artist can produce the art product in the given time period, budget, and guidelines.
D. Sensitivity and understanding of the proposal to the site, surroundings, and Peoria’s image
E. Attention to safety, durability and maintenance requirements.
How to Apply
Applications will be taken through the CaFE system ONLY. Applications will NOT be accepted by Postal Mail. Do NOT send applications by email.
