Type: RFPs / RFQs

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Pennsylvania

Description: The Public Art and Civic Design Division (PA+CD) of the Department of City Planning is currently seeking proposals from an artist, an artist collective, an arts institution, educational institution, or designers, to implement a public art project within the Uptown EcoInnovation District (EID). Artists should propose a concept for the project. The artist will be selected based on this concept and will work with City Planning staff and the community to develop a final proposal. There will be a series of three permanent art installations within the EID, the first project being awarded via this RFP. Two subsequent RFP’s will be released for the additional projects.

Working with the neighborhood planner for Uptown, PA+CD plans to implement a project that aligns with the soon to be released Art Plan as well as the recently adopted Uptown / West Oakland EcoInnovation District (EID) community plan.
