Getting up to $65,000 in public art adornment

Calling all artists!! The city of Newport is offering $65,000 for artwork to dress up the new Newport Municipal Swim Center, located behind City Hall.

The art commission(s) will include artist fees, travel, and all costs associated with the fabrication of the artwork, all aspects of installation (e.g., mounting mechanisms, contrivances, or apparatuses), lighting considerations, and delivery.

A request for proposals (RFP) has been prepared and can be found on the home page of the city’s website at www.newportoregon.gov. The deadline for receipt of proposals is June 1, 2015, at 3:00 P.M. PDT.

The city may make more than one award for artwork, but the total amount of funding allocated for all artwork will not exceed $65,000.

The city created a Percent for the Arts Program through the adoption of Resolution No. 3589. This resolution requires one percent of eligible construction costs of major building projects be devoted to public art. One percent of the eligible construction costs for the new municipal swimming pool is projected to be $65,000.

Questions about the request for proposals may be directed to Peggy Hawker at p.hawker@newportoregon.gov.
