Google Inc, Burning Man Project (CA), Request for Proposals: Anchor Artwork for the Charleston East Plaza
Deadline: May 1st, 2018
Burning Man Project is pleased to announce an opportunity for artists to create an Anchor Artwork for the Charleston East plaza in the City of Mountain View, CA. This public plaza is where Google’s new Charleston East campus will be located, which is currently under construction and due to be completed in early/mid 2020. Burning Man Project is collaborating on the process of community engagement, along with selecting, creating and installing the artworks, as part of its ongoing efforts to promote opportunities for artists to create art and share it with the world.
The call is open to artists, artist teams, community groups working with designers, architects, landscape architects, or place-keeping experts who are interested in creating an exterior art installation that serves as an activation point for the Charleston East plaza site, for the Mountain View community and for the Google campus. Situated at the Charleston East plaza’s southeast corner, the Anchor Artwork will serve both as a welcoming entree to the plaza and as a place where the City of Mountain View and Google may host events, performances, and gatherings that bring the community together. Seen as a place to serve the community and generate opportunities for play, Charleston East Plaza is a part of a contiguous set of parks and wetlands that serve the bayshore area.
Budget: $750,000. Artists, designers, architects or teams invited to submit a full proposal will be required to provide a detailed budget including the cost of labor, materials and logistics for the creation, execution, and installation of the Anchor Artwork as described above. In some instances, installation assistance may be provided by Google (please articulate any specific requests you may have for equipment or installation support outside of the stated budget parameters).
