Request for Proposals/Request for Qualifications
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP) / REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS (RFQ):
Main Street Morgantown (MSM) requests proposals and qualifications from artists for the design and implementation of public art murals. This project is part of MSM’s ongoing public art initiative, Art’s Happening, which seeks to enhance and improve downtown Morgantown through the addition of quality public art.
This project represents the first two (2) in a series of artistic murals to be commissioned by MSM. For these two murals, MSM will choose and commission one (1) artist for each mural to present and develop concepts and oversee production and installation of an artwork, which will simultaneously meet the artistic/technical goals specified herein.
The two proposed public art murals shall be installed on the side of two downtown buildings. While definitive measurements of the wall areas will be forthcoming, for the purposes of this proposal artists should consider a coverage area of approximately 8-10’ in height, and up to 20-25’ in length.
The organizers of this project ask that all details regarding proposal submissions from artists and artist selections remain confidential until an announcement is made to the public. A formal press release will be distributed once the artists have been chosen for the two murals. Response to this RFP/RFQ signifies confidentiality between the organizers (MSM) and the artists involved in this process. Continue reading “Public Art Mural: Call for Artists”
