Request for Qualifications: Landmark Public Art at the Providence Innovation District Park

Optional art information session to be on Monday March 22, 2021, at 5pm via Zoom

The City of Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism and Art in City Life Commission invite artists to submit qualifications for a Landmark Public Artwork in the City’s new Providence Innovation District Park.  This inaugural, large-scale, signature, permanent work of art will be the first of its kind in the City and is the first activation of Providence’s Art in City Life Ordinance. Successful proposals will grapple with the historic complexity of the site. A site brief accompanies the RFQ and outlines both the current site condition and use as well as historical context.

This call for qualifications is open to professional artists within the United States.  Black, Indigenous, People of Color, women, gender nonconforming persons, LGBTQIA+ community members and people with differing physical abilities are highly encouraged to apply. Artists living across Rhode Island are highly encouraged to apply.

Deadline for qualifications: April 18, 2021.

Budget: $850,000
