REDWOOD CITY, CA – RFQ – First Responder Tribute

In RFQ on August 13, 2018 at 3:13 pm

The City of Redwood City, in partnership with the Port of Redwood City, and Sims Metal Management, is seeking proposals for a community-driven project to recognize First Responders within San Mateo County, who daily serve to protect the citizenry, and to memorialize those who have perished working tirelessly to safeguard lives and liberty. Importantly, this world class monument will honor those who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks on the United States. Two artists will be selected to proceed to the RFP process (Request for Proposal). The two finalists will be notified by September 28, 2018. A key proponent of this proposed monument are two steel beams, approximately 20 feet long each, recovered from the World Trade Center to be used in their original form to honor and respect the memory of that day and all who perished.

ELIGIBILITY: Open call to professional artists with experience working with substantial budgets ($50,000 and more).

BUDGET: The total budget, including the monument and place-making, may be up to $500,000 or more. This estimation includes the artist fee, design, labor, materials, fabrication, installation, landscaping, etc. It is envisioned that a majority of this budget estimate will come from private and non-profit donations, corporate sponsorships, and other outside funding sources.

DEADLINE: September 21, 2018

QUESTIONS: Chris Beth, PRCS Director,
