The City of El Paso’s Museums and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD) Public Art Program seeks to establish a new pre-qualified list of emerging and established artist and artist teams working in a variety of visual media and artistic approaches for its 2015 – 2017 Pre-Qualified Artist List.

ELIGIBILITY: The pre-qualified artist list is open to any professional artist or artist team of age 18 years or older working in all media types. The list is used to streamline the selection process and opens up every two years for artists to submit their information, once submitted artist will be able to remain on the eligibility list for four years before re-applying. As public art projects arise artist will be pooled from the list and placed for review and consideration to the project.

BUDGET: The public art projects are funded by two percent (2%) of the net proceeds of any revenue bond or certificates of obligation issued for construction projects throughout the City. The award for an artist contract can range from $20,000 to $500,000,inclusive of community collaboration, design, fabrication, and installation of artwork (including shipping expenses and insurance), travel, and all other project related costs.

DEADLINE: All interested artists are encouraged to apply and review further details of the RFQ at www.callforentry.organd submit application by January 30th by 5:00 pm (MST).
