RFQ: Los Angeles County Public Art Opportunity, Pico Rivera Library
The Los Angeles County Arts Commission's Civic Art Program seeks an artist or artist team to execute a unique and dynamic artwork for the new Pico Rivera Library. The library, a jointly funded project by the City of Pico Rivera and Los Angeles County, will be a focal point of the community, an architectural beacon for the City and a destination in the San Gabriel Valley.
The Civic Art Program seeks an artwork that is innovative, experiential and interactive. The artwork should work in harmony with the building architecture and offer an engaging respite for the Library staff and users. The selected artist will have the opportunity to work with the project design team both to refine the best opportunities for civic art and to fully develop the artwork design. An artist that is willing to interact with local art students is desired.
An all-inclusive budget of $150,000 is projected. The budget includes artist fees, liability insurance, travel, fabrication, delivery, installation and any other costs associated with realizing the artwork.
This commission is open to professional artists living in the United States of America.
Deadline: Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 2011.
