Call for public art proposals: City of Anderson Church Street Heritage Project

Anderson Call for Art

Proposal deadline: January 30

The Anderson Arts Center and the City of Anderson are requesting proposals from qualified individuals to support the public art phase of the Church Street Heritage Project. An outdoor public art display will be located in the park commemorating the once thriving business community of black entrepreneurs on Church Street in downtown Anderson.

This call is open to professional artists with experience working on public art projects and creating site-specific works.

Selection for this project will be made by a panel including stakeholders, design professionals, a City representative, and members of the arts community. The panel will look at the merit of the artist’s work, past experience at completing projects on time and within budget, and appropriateness and maintenance requirements of the proposed concept. The panel will also consider artists who can demonstrate sensitivity to the site and surroundings. Artists must be able to commit and effectively work within the project timeline and collaborate with the Arts Center and administration.

The total artist’s fee for the project is $75,000. This amount must cover all associated costs including design, materials, fabrication, travel, insurance coverage, shipping and installation.

Request for qualifications and proposals deadline is January 30, 2017 at 11:59 pm (Mountain Time Zone).
