City of Reno – Oddie Boulevard Public Art Project
Website City of Reno
Deadline: June 30, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. PST
The City of Reno Arts & Culture Commission (RACC) invites you to submit your qualifications to be eligible for a $150,000 public art commission for the Oddie and Silverada district of Reno, Nevada. This opportunity is open to artists who are at least 18 years old and living and working in the United States.
The RACC is seeking qualifications from artists or artist teams interested in developing a large-scale public art project in the Oddie and Silverada district that reflects the vibrancy and community of one of Reno’s up-and-coming districts in conjunction with a street reorientation project led by the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County. The RACC is looking to commission an artist/artist team to design, fabricate, and install large-scale sculpture at two sites. Goals of the art installation are to promote community identity, a welcoming environment, walkability, bikeability, and neighborhood interaction.
RACC seeks artists with public art experience. The $150,000 commission will cover all services from design through final installation/implementation, including artist fee, fabrication, insurance, transportation, permitting, engineering, travel fees, and installation.
From this RFQ, three finalists will be selected by the Public Art Committee (PAC), community representatives, and the RACC. Finalists will be paid to travel to the site, meet with the community, and submit concept proposals. This process will allow the artists to learn more about the community and work with them to create a project that reflects their needs and the identity of the neighborhood. In this way, the community will feel a sense of ownership and the artwork becomes more meaningful and reflective of a broader perspective. Final selection of one artist or team will be made by the PAC, RACC, and stakeholders based on proposal presentations and interviews.
