Austin Art in Public Places Request for Proposals

The City of Austin Art in Public Place (AIPP) program of the Cultural Arts Division, Economic Growth & Redevelopment Office seeks to commission a professional visual artist to create a work of art for the African-American Cultural & Heritage Facility Art in Public Places project. The goal for the public art is to showcase a work of contemporary public art that honors the cultural heritage of the African-American community in Austin. The public art for this project will be located in a publicly accessible location on the exterior grounds of the facility.
The City of Austin requests proposals from professional visual artists who live and work in the State of Texas. One artist/artist team and one alternate will be recommended for the project.
Emerging Artists and Artists who have not completed a work of public art, but who can demonstrate through their proposal the ability to transfer their artistic vision into a form and materials appropriate for public art, are encouraged to apply.
The design and commission budget for art is $65,000.
Submission deadline is midnight, Monday, January 10, 2011.
