Public Art for Downtown Festival Block



 Addendum 1

Questions/Clarifications: Tammi Leatham,

Deadline: December 5th, 2018 at 1pm. Mountain Standard Time


Boise City invites public artists to apply for an opportunity to design and fabricate public artwork(s) to be integrated into the streetscape on a new downtown festival block. Up to three artists may be selected from this Request for Qualifications as finalists who will be invited to participate in an interview process.  Finalist artists will be invited to visit Boise, the site, and the project team, receive more information about the project opportunity and be interviewed by members of the project team and selection panel. Finalist artists will be compensated for travel to Boise for the interview and site visit. The artist(s) selected through the interview process will be placed on a design contract and be asked to collaborate with the project team to develop design options to present to the selection panel. The selected artist(s) will be provided a combined project total of $60,000 to develop and formalize the design, fabricate, and transport the work to the site.  Installation of the work will be coordinated with a contractor who has an Idaho State Public Works License and will be paid for separately by the City of Boise.

The City intends to award the contract to one artist; however, the City reserves the right to award to more than one applicant.



Please mail or hand deliver the application by December 5th, 2018 by 1 pm to:
