Deadline Extended! – CITY OF SANTA MONICA: RFP Artist Designed Bicycle Racks

In RFP on June 4, 2011 at 5:42 pm

The City of Santa Monica’s Public Art Program is seeking artists to design and create functional bicycle racks to be integrated into the Ocean Park Boulevard “Green Streets” Project.  This is an exciting opportunity for artists—both experienced and emerging, located in Los Angeles County. We will select two (2) concepts to fabricate for this project and up to six (6) more concepts to develop into a final, fabrication-ready design, with the intention of creating limited editions (not to exceed 5) for use in future City projects.  Artists whose designs have been selected for the limited editions for future City projects will receive a $2,000 stipend to develop a final design suitable for fabrication.

BUDGET: Artists/artist teams whose concepts are selected for this project will receive $6,000 per bike rack to cover final design development, fabrication and delivery costs. It is anticipated that the City will produce 2‐4 bike racks in each selected design. Artists are responsible for delivery of completed racks to the City of Santa Monica. The City will be responsible for installing each rack in a designated location along Ocean Park Boulevard.

ELIGIBILITY: This call is open to artists/artist teams residing within Los Angeles County, who have experience working with durable materials appropriate for outdoor public spaces and have demonstrated innovative and creative approaches in similar projects.

DEADLINE: Thursday, June 23, 2011

CONTACT: Malina Moore, 1437 4th St., Suite 310, Santa Monica, CA 90401; (310) 458-8350;
