    Request for Qualifications – Silverton, Ohio Public Art 

    Deadline: 5:00pm EST, May 25th, 2019

    Kennedy Heights Arts Center, in partnership with The Village of Silverton, is currently seeking submissions for a Request for Qualifications for a Public Art piece to be installed in Silverton, Ohio. 

    Silverton seeks to commission a permanent public art piece to be installed in Silverton Park, at the corner of Montgomery Road and Highland Avenue. We seek to commission a high quality original artwork that reflects the Village of Silverton, its residents, and will act as an identifiable icon for the area. There are no requirements as to material or form; although the artwork must be permanent and site-specific.

    Located in an area that is known as the gateway to downtown Silverton, we are seeking an artwork that is visually bold and impactful, and reflects the feeling of the neighborhood: inviting, inclusive, comforting, friendly, exciting, and unique.

    A total budget of $40,000 has been allocated for this public art commission. This total sum is inclusive of all artist(s) fees, insurance, fabrication, installation, travel, and all other project-related expenses. This sum excludes all structural support for the art, structural design services, and lighting needs, as the The Village of Silverton will separately fund and contract for footers, landscaping, lighting, and other needs. The artwork installation schedule will be further developed during the RFP process, with a desired completion time of Spring 2020. 

    Deadline is 5:00pm EST, May 25th, 2019.
