Two National Public Art Opportunities Open in Memphis


The Memphis Urban Art Commission is accepting artist applications for two public art projects. These projects are open to all artists in the United States and will include sculptures and other public art pieces. Selection criteria will include previous experience with the design of exterior sculpture projects. The deadline to submit qualifications is May 20, 2016.

The John F. Kennedy Park call is open to any artist living in the United States and has a budget of $71,000. The integrative sculpture will enhance JFK Park and the Wolf River Greenway and will join two other existing projects along points of the greenway. The selection committee is interested in multiple public art pieces that will attract interest in the park and connect the park’s entrance to the greenway. These pieces should be able to withstand flood conditions.

The Army and Navy Parks opportunity has a budget of $90,500 and is open to any artist living in the United States. These historical parks near Central Station, a passenger railroad station in Memphis, are sites where many military said goodbye to family members before leaving for military service. The selection committee is looking for public art pieces for each park that will acknowledge the historical significance of the parks while also benefiting the nearby business corridor and providing visitors with the ability to interact with the art through tactile or auditory elements or other methods.

The requests for qualifications along with contact information for each are available on our website at http://www..org/open-projects/.

Contact – For questions about the details of this call.
Hank Hancock
Project Manager
Skyline Art Services
Deadline 1/15/15
Budget: $358,508
Location: San Marcos, TX
Eligibility: International

Applicants will submit their materials through callforentry.org.

Texas State University invites professional artists, or artist teams, to submit qualifications to design and fabricate sculpture or sculptures for an exterior and/or interior public space on its campus in San Marcos, Texas. The site is a new residence hall complex, currently under construction on Moore Street.

The Moore Street residence hall complex serves undergraduate students at Texas State, nearly all of whom are freshmen. Their first experience of college life begins on this site, meeting new friends, and preparing for new and life-changing experiences, and meeting the challenge presented by new fields of knowledge and learning. At the west end of campus, the new building’s main entrance will face east toward the unique grounds of Texas State University, built into the hills above San Marcos, characterized by expansive use of brick, stone, and dozens of buildings joined together by stairways, ramps, and terraces. The campus also includes the headwaters of a stunningly clear and cold-spring fed San Marcos River. The area’s visually striking geology and ecology are unique to this part of Texas.


This public art commission is open to all professional artists or artist-led teams with experience in similar such projects.

As this is a Request for Qualifications, not a Request for Proposals, we are providing only an introductory look at the site with the rendering provided at this link: https://www.callforentry.org/fair_plans/2259.jpeg. The Texas State University Public Art Committee will provide complete plans to the artists that are invited to submit proposals, as described in Section 6 of the RFQ.
