San Antonio call for Public Art Qualifications


New Public Art Call At PublicArtist.org

Name of Call: FY2017 Call for Public Art Qualifications: Public Artist

Budget: $0
Deadline: 9/2/16

The City of San Antonio seeks professional qualifications from local, state, and national artists for potential public art projects. The FY2017 Pre-Qualified List is used to select public artists for upcoming commission opportunities to create new public artworks in conjunction with City-funded capital improvements.

To better diversify our pre-qualified list and select artists with a wide range of qualifications, applicants are required to identify as either an emerging public artist, mid-career public artist, or established public artist.

***Cultivating local artists’ participation in the city’s pre-qualified list is critical to the success of public art in San Antonio. Therefore, Public Art San Antonio (PASA) will select ten local applicants to participate in a Local Public Art Mentorship Course. The course will be led by experienced artists and administrators to advance the applicant’s professional public art development. Artists must attend twoSaturday sessions (Oct. 8 and Oct. 22), and complete an interim assignment. Completion of the course will result in two year pre-qualification, this is a one-time opportunity.***

Once approved by City Council all pre-qualified artists remain eligible for contract opportunities over a two-year period. Artists who were approved in March 2016 need not apply.

Those who previously applied to this call and were not selected are encouraged to update their previous application and reapply.

* Please don’t wait until the last minute to apply! We strongly encourage you to submit your application early to lessen the traffic load on the site.

Request for Temporary Public Art Project Proposals
Part of the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update
Deadline: September 6, 2016
The City of Fort Worth is embarking on an update of the original Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan, which sets forth a vision for public art in Fort Worth and makes recommendations of future projects and guidelines for artist selection and design review.

Master Plan Update Consultants Barbara Goldstein and Jessica Cusick are seeking a diverse team of socially-engaged arts professionals to develop a project that will reach people of all ages and cultural backgrounds in Fort Worth in a lively and compelling way. Projects should actively reach the public and result in measurable information that can be used in the update of the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan.

Eligible projects should take place in various locations throughout Fort Worth over a six month period from October 2016 through February 2017. The Public Art Master Plan Update consultants and FWPA staff will work with the selected artist team to finalize locations and to create a framework for capturing information that can be incorporated into the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update.

The budget for this project is $30,000.

This call is limited to North Texas Artists living in Tarrant County and surrounding counties.
