Request for proposals
FestivALL Charleston seeks applications from artists for a commission of utilitarian public art, Artist Designed Refuse Containers. The installation site will be along the riverside sidewalks of Kanawha Boulevard between Haddad Riverfront Park and Magic Island. Members of FestivALL's Public Art Selection Panel will review the qualifications of the artists who apply and finalists will be interviewed by the panel. One finalist will be asked to return for a public event to present the selected designs. The FestivALL Public Art selection panel, with input from the public, will chose one design from one artist to be awarded the commission.
Applications are due Aug. 31. This project is open to all qualified artists 18 years or older and are U.S. citizens or legal residents. A $1,000 commission will be awarded for the selected design. The artist is responsible for working with the Project Team to adjust selected design to meet fabrication specs and approve final design before fabrication begins. Artist is not responsible for fabrication, CAD designs, painting or installation.
There is no specific theme requirement. This is an open design call. A public meeting to discuss applications and questions will be held from 6-7 p.m. Aug. 2 at the West Virginia State University Economic Development Center at 1506 Kanawha Blvd. W.
