The City of River Falls is accepting proposals from artists or teams of artists who would like to be considered for an exterior installation located at the City’s historic Glen Park, 355 West Park Street. Read the RFP here = /Archive.aspx?ADID=1138.
The City is seeking proposals for public art to honor the history of Glen Park as well as to enhance the area for the future. The artist(s) will design, fabricate and install the artwork within Glen Park. The artwork should be made of durable materials suitable for outside elements and change in temperature and as impervious to vandalism as possible. The artwork shall require little or no maintenance.
As part of the proposal, the artist(s) will include information on the design, fabrication, and installation of the artwork. It is expected that the artwork will be freestanding and not fixed to, or painted on, any existing structure at the park. A base, or mounting surface, for the art should be included by the artist in the proposal.
The artist(s) should visit the proposed installation site prior to submitting a proposal. Please contact Assistant City Administrator Jason Stroud at (715) 426-3416 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Artist is responsible for all associated expenses related to design, fabrication, transportation, and installation of the artwork. The City expects total project costs to remain below $32,000. Please include an itemized project budget in your proposal.
Our goal date for installation is prior to 2023. Duration of installation is considered permanent, considering the life of the artwork. The City of River Falls will retain ownership of the artwork or decommission at its discretion.
