RFP: The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway Centerpiece Artwork


The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) (Seattle, WA)

The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture (ARTS) in partnership with The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway, seeks an artist/artist team to create a durable and permanent public work of art to be sited in a transit-oriented development (TOD) on Capitol Hill at Broadway and John streets.

The AMP Centerpiece Artwork will provide a physical place for remembrance and reflection, and a call to action to end HIV/AIDS, stigma, and discrimination. The artwork will be sited adjacent to a tower wall approximately 40' high and 30' wide, located at the north end of the TOD plaza. The tower wall serves as a backdrop to a central community space and will be flanked by several new multi-story residential buildings that are under construction now.

Eligibility: This call is open to professional artists around the world. ARTS encourages diversity in its collection. Artists whose work is well represented in the city's collection are eligible to apply, but the artist selection panel will consider artistic diversity as one factor in the selection process. Students are not eligible to apply.

Funding: The selected artist/artist team will receive a commission of $300,000 USD to design, fabricate, and install the artwork. This amount is inclusive of all travel, taxes, and other expenses. The project contractor will provide additional in-kind engineering and construction support to the artist(s), to be coordinated once under contract.

Deadline: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 10:59 p.m. Pacific.
