Art in Public Buildings RFQ: Casper College Visual Arts Building
- Budget: $51,750
Eligibility: Applicant must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident and a minimum of 18 years of age.
The committee is interested in exterior, site specific work. There are several locations in the south plaza that could accommodate large sculptural work. Artists may consider one or more of these locations. Work in this area would be highly visible when approaching campus, and would be visible from inside the building from the second floor. There is also the possibility for work on the northeast corner of the site in front of the large metal paneling that surrounds the outdoor kiln yard.
The committee would like to see artwork that connects to the college and the Visual Art Department’s emphasis on teaching foundations, and/or offers a conceptual approach to the landscape, environment, and sense of place. The committee would like to see work that appreciates the clean and simple design approach of the building and utilizes it as a backdrop, work that is colorful and unique, and contemporary. The committee is not interested in representational work.
The committee is particularly interested in artists who are willing to work with students during the fabrication or installation processes, or be willing to provide public art talks or lectures.
All styles, genres, conceptual approaches, and mediums will be considered. All proposed artwork must be durable, structurally sound, secure, site appropriate, built to withstand the environment, and easy to maintain. Additional drawings, site plans, and information will be provided to the artists invited to submit complete proposals.
