NEW MEXICO – RFQ – Prospectus #225 Central New Mexico Community College

In RFQ on January 24, 2015 at 12:17 am

The Art in Public Places Program of New Mexico Arts and the Local Selection Committee (LSC) for CNM seek an artist or artist team to create a site-specific commission project. The LSC is interested in commissioning artwork that will engage students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the CNM Main Campus in a way that speaks to ideas of education, community, transformation, and success. The LSC would like a work that is monumental in scale and would serve as a meeting place or identifiable location in a new system of wayfinding on campus—a landmark gathering point, perhaps.

ELIGIBILITY: This request for qualifications is open to all artists or artist teams working in the United States. Artists submitting qualifications should demonstrate a level of experience and professionalism that is commensurate with the project scope and budget.

BUDGET:$110,500 is available for this project after finalist presentation fees and travel expenses. This amount includes all fees and expenses associated with the project, e.g., materials, equipment, labor, permits, engineering documents, insurance, taxes, travel, installation, shipping, identification plaque, and written and professional photographic documentation of the completed project. There is no additional funding.

DEADLINE: February 9, 2015

QUESTIONS: Michelle Laflamme-Childs, Public Art Coordinator, at 505-827-6490, email:
