The City of Reno is accepting qualifications from artists/artist teams and artist-led design teams for a public art opportunity at the Moana Springs Community Aquatics and Fitness Center in Reno, NV. Artists and design teams working in the United States and who have experience designing projects with a similar budget and scope are encouraged to apply.
About the Project:
The City of Reno is seeking artists and artist-led design teams for a large-scale public art project that comprises multiple artworks and locations for artwork. The City is looking for projects that take into consideration the history of the site and the unique characteristics of the surrounding environment.
There are multiple locations that the City is interested in commissioning artwork for including the exterior north facing facade of the building, the interior main corridor, the outdoor soaking pool area, the entrance lobby, and the surrounding grounds (exact locations to be determined). Artwork may include sculpture, suspended art, mural, relief, and artistic lighting components. The Moana Springs Community Aquatics and Fitness Center Public Art Project is an opportunity to create art across the facility and grounds that will function together with a cohesive, overarching vision.
This call for artists is looking to program 5 main areas with artwork. Each location is different and will require a unique approach. Artists and artists teams/artist-led design teams should take the following into consideration for each location:
- Creating multiple visual angles and approaches
- Day and night activation
- Artwork sustainability and conservation
Selected artists/artist teams/design team will be expected to work with the community, City staff, building architects and engineers, and stakeholders to design the final artworks. The City is encouraging teams of artists or design teams to apply for this opportunity. Link to the project website.
