CLAREMONT – RFP – City Hall Temporary Art Installation

In RFP on September 8, 2017 at 6:00 pm

The City of Claremont is best known for its tree-lined streets, historic buildings, and college campuses. Over the last couple of years, Claremont’s lovely trees have been impacted by the drought, as many communities have. The Red Iron Bark tree that was in front of City Hall for many years was inspected as part of the City Hall re-landscaping project in 2015. Decay was found in the tree at the junction of the main branches and due to its high traffic location it was recommended the tree be removed. Shortly after the tree was removed, the City replaced the tree with a large specimen Camphor tree. After several attempts to find a permanent replacement tree, it was decided that it would be best not to replant another tree in that area, and instead the City decided that this could be a wonderful opportunity to add public art at City Hall with a rotating installation. Submitting artists should be aware of the importance of site specificity, engagement with local narratives/history, and appropriate imagery and materials for public space.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to all professional visual artists or collaborative artist teams at least 18 years of age, residing in California are eligible to apply. City of Claremont employees including consultants, Public Art Committee members and City volunteers are ineligible to apply.

BUDGET: The selected artist will receive $5,000 for the term of the art loan. The City of Claremont will provide the initial foundation (at approximately 6’x6”x18″). The City of Claremont will pay for transport, delivery and installation fees not to exceed $5,000 and manage installation. The selected artist will be required to purchase a City of Claremont Business license for $130.

DEADLINE: October 2, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.
