SCOPE OF PUBLIC ART PROJECT
The Public Art Program of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs requests the submission of qualifications from professional artists and/or artist teams to work with the Park and Recreation Department and the community surrounding the future site of the Elm Fork Soccer Complex to participate in the development and execution of a work of public art. The Soccer Complex is highly environmentally conscientious and therefore preference will be given to artists who demonstrate the ability to work with renewable resources that will have a minimal impact on the environment. There are several locations for public art including:
• Driveway roundabout
• Green space around the concession pavilion in the picnic area
A panel comprised of arts professionals and community representatives will review qualified submissions in January 2012. A small group of artists will be short-listed for the project and each artist will be requested to provide a site-specific concept based on an investigation of the complex. Each artist selected will receive a stipend of $3,000 to cover costs of producing a public art concept proposal for the park. The site-specific proposals will be used to assess the artist’s creative process and approach. The stipend must cover all costs of site visits, site research, production of a site-specific public art concept and travel to make a presentation of the proposal to a selection panel.
Short-listed artists will present their proposal to the selection panel in the spring of 2012 and one artist or artist team will be selected for review and approval by the Public Art Committee and the Cultural Affairs Commission, the Park and Recreation Board and the City Council.
All professional artists are eligible to apply, except for artists currently under contract with the City of Dallas Public Art Program, employees of the City of Dallas, their spouses, members of the Public Art Committee, or any consultants under contract for any phase of these projects. The City of Dallas Cultural Policy prohibits undergraduate students from being considered for Public Art projects.
Additional qualifications include:
• Demonstrated ability to work with a design team and landscape designers.
• Ability to attend and/or participate in meetings with design teams, community members and others involved in the project. Participation can be by phone.
