Artwork Location Description
CHANDLER: Pedestals on Arizona Avenue between Chicago St and Boston St. The pedestals are roughly 24” high and 42” in diameter. There is more than one pedestal available, and the artwork could go on one or more of the pedestals. All pedestals are outside, and artworks will need to be able to stand up to the elements. Artworks will be bolted to the pedestals, and artist should take care to cover the attachment points to keep the transition from artwork to pedestal as clean and secure as possible.
GLENDALE: The lobby of City Hall, 5850 W Glendale Ave. – To the left of the security/information desk is a floor to ceiling space. Desire is that the artwork utilize the verticality. The space is adjacent to windows; thus the selected artwork can be seen from the outside as well as greet visitors and City staff and government officials. Please keep in mind that security will prohibit covering the windows.
PHOENIX: Four performance-based commissions will be awarded to individual or teams of artists, musicians, dancers, etc. Times and locations will be determined in the design process. The works should hold the potential to be portable and be presented in highly visible and accessible public areas, including community centers, parks, and libraries throughout the City of Phoenix.
Please keep the following in mind when creating your proposal:
The above timeline may be varied at the discretion of the applicable partner city/cities.
Each partnering city will hold their own selection panel for their site(s). The selection panelists will make recommendations based on the specific nature of each site. Once these recommendations have been made, the IN FLUX partners will meet to determine final locations for selected artists to ensure placement is feasible and there is diversity within the IN FLUX collection for Cycle 9. Members of each panel will include artists, arts professionals, and community members. The selection panels will meet in mid-October; artists will be notified shortly thereafter.
Selected artists will be contracted by each commissioning agency and work directly with the project manager designated by their assigned partnering organization. All artists will be notified of selection results via e-mail in October and given the opportunity to request feedback from the selection panel.
