The City of Ketchum, Idaho invites professional artists, architects, and designers to apply for a permanent outdoor sculpture 2020 installation at a site on the City’s Fourth Street Heritage Corridor. Original artwork by one selected artist, architect, designer, or artistic team will be displayed on an outdoor pedestal beginning in July 2020 and will become a permanent part of the city’s art collection. Total budget for the sculpture (either new or existing work), including artist fee, design, materials, fabrication, shipping, and installation is $29,000. The sculpture will be featured on the city’s website and in various social media forums.
Deadline: 3 Dec 2019
Following review of the request for qualifications submissions, the Ketchum Arts Commission (KAC) will select up to three semi-finalists to submit proposals for new or existing work. Each semi-finalist will receive $250 upon submission of proposal.
One artist or artist team will be selected after a juried process to evaluate the submissions for the permanent outdoor sculpture 2020. The chosen work will then be recommended by the KAC to the Ketchum City Council for final approval, fabrication (if not yet fabricated), and installation on an existing concrete pedestal on Fourth Street between East and Walnut avenues.
