The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) in partnership with the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) and the Urban Waters Federal Partnership (UWFP) is seeking qualifications from artists or artist teams for a public art project that will result in an environmentally-focused sculpture in a new urban farm to be created in the Washington, DC neighborhood of Capitol View (Ward 7). Up to five artists/artist teams will be selected for a short-list phase. Semifinalists will receive a $1,000 to $2,000 stipend to be used for design proposal and travel. The total project budget for the public art is $120,000. The winning artist/team will collaborate with DCCAH, UDC, UWFP and a project team comprised of District of Columbia Building Industry Association (DCBIA) members who will provide site design and build out.
This RFQ is open to all professional artists/artist teams over the age of 18 located in the United States. Applicants with previous work experience in creating environmentally focused public art are preferable.
The total budget for design, fabrication and installation for the artwork is $120,000. The budget includes design, fabrication, engineering, installation and travel. Semi-finalists will receive design proposal stipends ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 based on the extent of travel required.
