Vista Avenue Public Art

CONTACT: Tammi Leatham,


Boise City invites public artists to apply for an opportunity to design and fabricate sculptural public artwork(s) for the median(s) on a significant and highly visible street, Vista Avenue. Up to three artists may be selected from this Request for Proposal as finalists who will be paid $1,000 each to provide a design concept proposal. Proposals will be put on public view for comment and the selection panel will choose the final work to commission. The selected artist(s) will be provided a combined project total up to $150,000 to formalize the design, fabricate, and transport the work to the site. Installation of the work will be coordinated with a contractor that 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.


DEADLINE: January 10, 2018
