CITY OF SANTA MONICA: RFP – Artist Designed Bicycle Racks
In RFP on March 17, 2011 at 10:34 pm
The City of Santa Monica’s Public Art Program is seeking artists to design and create functional bicycle racks to be integrated into the Ocean Park Boulevard “Green Streets” Project. This is an exciting opportunity for artists—both experienced and emerging, located in Los Angeles County. We will select two (2) concepts to fabricate for this project and up to six (6) more concepts to develop into a final, fabrication-ready design, with the intention of creating limited editions (not to exceed 5) for use in future City projects. Artists whose designs have been selected for the limited editions for future City projects will receive a $2,000 stipend to develop a final design suitable for fabrication.
DEADLINE: Wednesday, May 4, 2011
CONTACT FOR MORE INFORMATION: Malina Moore, 1437 4th St., Suite 310, Santa Monica, CA 90401; (310) 458-8350; email@example.com
