The District of Columbia Public Library Public Art Program, National Request for Proposals: 2-D Artwork for the Vestibule of the MLK Library, Washington D.C.

The District of Columbia Public Library Public Art Program, National Request for Proposals: 2-D Artwork for the Vestibule of the MLK Library, Washington D.C.

Deadline: February 1st, 2019

Temporary (Long-Term) Public Art Commission

Budget: $10,000 (Artist Fee inclusive of Design and Public Engagement Programming; does not include Fabrication/Installation)

The District of Columbia Public Library (DCPL) Public Art Program is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) from individual artists, designers or art/design teams to create a two dimensional artwork. The work will be a vinyl decal design applied to the interior glass walls of the main entrance of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial (Central) Library, at 901 G St. NW, in conjunction with a major modernization project to be completed in 2020. The artwork for this space should be a creative visual interpretation of Dr. King’s legacy as it connects to the Library, and which reflects multiple perspectives from D.C. communities. The selected artist will be required to create two public engagement programs at neighborhood libraries that inform some aspect of the design and/or creative process.

After reviewing responses to the RFP, a review panel will select the finalist on the basis of past work samples and a statement of artistic approach. The finalist will be required to attend a public program in late February regarding Dr. King’s legacy as it relates to DC Public Library. Following that event, the finalist will develop a proposal that includes (a) a visual design that reflects upon Dr. King’s legacy as it connects to the Library, and (b) two public engagement programs that will inform some part of the design or creative process. Final designs will be submitted in September 2019. In collaboration with the artist, the Library will oversee fabrication and installation of the artwork in mid-2020.

Eligibility: This RFP is open to all artists, designers, and art/design teams aged 18 or older. While US citizenship is not required, the lead artist/designer must have a social security number or Federal Tax ID (EIN) in order to receive payment. A proven track record in public art is not required; however, experience adapting studio work to larger-scale projects and managing complex projects is desired. The ability to work iteratively and collaboratively in the refinement of the final design is essential.

San Francisco Arts Commission (CA), National Request for Qualifications: Sculpture Honoring Dr. Maya Angelou at San Francisco Main Library

San Francisco Arts Commission (CA), National Request for Qualifications: Sculpture Honoring Dr. Maya Angelou at San Francisco Main Library

Deadline EXTENDED: January 25th, 2019, 11:59pm PST

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently passed a resolution entitled “Affirming San Francisco’s Commitment to 30% Female Representation in the Public Realm by the year 2020.” The Resolution recognizes that although 51% of the population is female, women are woefully underrepresented in sectors of public and private leadership roles, and their historical contributions are inadequately recognized in public statues and memorials. The Resolution asserts that research suggests that 30 percent is the proportion when critical mass is reached and in a group setting, the voices of the minority group become heard in their own right. There is a national movement to increase female representation in the public realm to 30 percent by the year 2020, the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution granting women the right to vote.

The Resolution urges San Francisco to meet and exceed that minimum threshold of female representation by recognizing the contribution that women have made to San Francisco and the world and urges all City departments to endeavor to achieve at least 30 percent non-fiction female representation in the public realm through works of art on City property, names of streets and right-of-ways, parks, public buildings and department websites and publications.

The first of these projects has been identified as an artwork honoring Dr. Maya Angelou in recognition of her many accomplishments including breaking the color and gender barriers by becoming San Francisco’s first African American female streetcar conductor, an award-winning author and poet, a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and a civil rights leader. The artwork will be located at the main branch of the San Francisco Library, which is located at 100 Larkin St.,in the Civic Center Complex, facing City Hall.

Awards:
Finalist Honoraria:  $2,000. plus travel allowance up to $1,000. for out of town artists
Artist’s Contract: The artist’s contract for artwork will be $180,000., inclusive of all artist’s fees, and associated expenses for design, structural engineering, fabrication, insurance, transportation and consultation during installation.
Installation Allowance (under a separate contract between the Commission and an art handler):  $20,000.

Eligibility: Eligibility is open to professional, practicing artists who reside in the United States. Entries not meeting eligibility guidelines will be withdrawn from consideration.

International Call for Applicants: Sonoran Artist Residency (AZ), Spring 2019

International Call for Applicants: Sonoran Artist Residency (AZ), Spring 2019

Deadline: February 1st, 2019

From their call: This residency is open to emerging, mid-career and established artists, giving them the opportunity to step away from the day-to-day hustle and focus on a new or existing project in an inspiring setting. Ajo is a beautiful, quiet, little-known town in the heart of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, ideal for a period of creativity and experimentation, as well as exploration. Our community is full of artists of all kinds and embraces visiting artists from across the country and around the globe. 

For Spring 2019, there is no prescribed theme or medium. We are focusing on visual and performing artists, and preference is given to Native and Latinx individuals to highlight the historic (and historically underrepresented) populations of this region. That said, artists of all backgrounds and cultures are encouraged to apply.

Visiting artists are given a kitchenette room at the Sonoran Desert Inn for the duration of their stay. Our rooms, all former elementary school classrooms, are comfortable, air conditioned, spacious, and full of light. The kitchenette, stocked with a coffeemaker (and locally roasted coffee), fridge, microwave, stove, pots, pans, and dishes, allows artists to easily prepare their own simple meals.

Visiting artists will also be provided, at no cost, a large, air conditioned classroom as their studio space. Classrooms are approximately 800 square feet and have five 8-foot windows, letting in lots of natural light. They are equipped with an artist sink; hi-speed WiFi; cabinets, closets and shelving for storage of supplies; and tables and chairs (which can be removed if not needed).  Studios are ADA-friendly, with ADA-accessible restrooms nearby.

We have rehearsal and performance space available, as well as outdoor work spaces for artists wishing to work en plein air.

While we welcome visual and performing artists working in any medium to apply, there are some limitations to the work space and available equipment.

Design, Photography & Experiment Call in Glass: 7th International Marianne Brandt Contest

Design, Photography & Experiment Call in Glass: 7th International Marianne Brandt Contest

Deadline: April 30th, 2019

Design, Photography, Experiment:In 2019, when the hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus is being commemorated all over Germany and the world, the 7th International Marianne Brandt Contest will focus on the functional and metaphorical potential of glass as material, which has had an unrivaled formative influence on the visionary beginnings of the German school of design. Taking the theme “I am all of glass” – quoting a poem by Marianne Brandt – prizes will be awarded in the categories of design, photography and art, (5.000 € each) and there will also be several special prizes.

Design:In this category, the contest asks for products that incorporate both glass-enabled functions and uses, as well as designs that develop practical and helpful artifacts with regard to the metaphor and characteristics of glass.

Photography: The category photography is about image-finding, which motivates a change in the perspicacious and sensory perspectives of the material and materiality of glass, and works that explicitly draw their characteristics from material observation and study.

Experiment: This special category focuses on processes and designs for experimental and unconventional exploration of glass in design processes. Requested are experimental arrangements, studies and models to explore dimensions of the possibilities of the material as well as free artistic explorations of visions and nightmares on light and transparency.

The participation fee is 30 €, it is payable at registration.

The competition is divided into two stages. In the first stage works are submitted in digital form. The participants register on the website, after the receipt of the registration fee participants can upload their work in the form of a PDF file (file size up to 5 MB). An international jury selects and nominates 60 works for the exhibition. The nominated participants will receive a message if they entered the second stage with further details for submission. The postage for the entry and return of the nominated exhibits needs to be borne by the participant.
