|DUE DATE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2012, 4 PM ARIZONA TIMELink to website: http://www.phoenix.gov/arts/businessoac/index.htmlThe Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture requests qualifications from professional artists with demonstrated design team and community experience. There are four commissions available at this time. The selected artists or artist teams are expected to work in a collaborative manner with City departments, selected design teams, and community groups.
• One artist or artist team will be selected to work collaboratively to design pedestrian amenities to improve the streetscape along Hatcher Road, between Central Avenue and 5th Street as part of the Hatcher Road Public Art Project.
• One artist or artist team will be selected to design streetscape enhancements that improve pedestrian and transit features as part of Neighborhood Services Department upgrades in the area as part of the 16th Street and Bethany Home Road Public Art Project.
• One artist or artist team will be selected to work with the community, City departments and the Salt River Project to improve the safety and connectivity of major street and trail crossings along the Grand Canal through central Phoenix. The Grand Canal’s trail system could provide a bicycle- and walker-friendly transportation corridor linking neighborhoods and amenities in central Phoenix to such landmarks as Pueblo Grande, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and Valley Metro Light Rail. This project could integrate designs into existing canal bridges and include path improvements, lighting, trail markers, shade features and other essentials as part of the Arterial Canal Crossings and Trail Connections Public Art project.
• One or more artists will be selected to work with City departments to create new designs for bicycle racks. The racks would be produced in editions and installed to add functionality, distinction and beauty to city streetscapes. Artists specializing in industrial and product design are encouraged to apply. This project will address design only.
