The City of Tucson is seeking Artists and/or Artist teams to create public art in connection with the Valencia Road widening project.

The selected Artist(s) will be responsible for designing, fabricating, and installing artwork under the guidance of the Public Art Project Panel assembled for this project. The selected Artists(s) will be required to provide professional construction design plans to the City of Tucson for approval prior to fabrication. The artwork should reflect the culture and aesthetics of the local community to promote distinctive neighborhood identities. Representatives of local communities will be involved in the design process.
The all-inclusive final budget of $183,412 for artwork(s) must cover any and all costs related to the design, fabrication, installation, and all fees of the artwork(s). This amount is expected to cover the Artist fee and all costs associated with the design, fabrication, and installation of the artwork(s) including, but not limited to insurance, tax, mileage, research, community engagement, panel meetings, engineering plans, and all fabrication materials and labor expenses. This is the total budget for the project.
