RHODE ISLAND STATE COUNCIL ON THE ARTS Public Art Call

Friday, December 6th, 2013

 

REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS

PAUL W. CROWLEY MET CENTER, EAST BAY CAMPUS
NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND
BUDGET: $60,000
APPLICATION DEADLINE: JANUARY 15, 2014

Artwork for the Paul W. Crowley Met Center, East Bay Campus, Newport, Rhode Island will be commissioned by the Rhode Island State Council On the Arts, (RISCA), through Rhode Island’s Public Art Law, which mandates that 1% of all state capital construction and renovation funds be allocated to the purchase and maintenance of public art.  Through this program the State recognizes that “public art creates a more humane environment: one of distinction, enjoyment, and pride for all citizens.”

About The Institution

Construction of the Paul W. Crowley Met Center East Bay Campus building began on April 6, 2013. The following is paraphrased from the school website:
Named after the late State Representative Paul W. Crowley, the Met’s East Bay Campus is committed to continuing his legacy of demanding excellence in public education and supporting the growth of the Newport County community.
Representative Crowley was seen as a visionary and in that spirit this campus will maximize renewable energy sources available on site and minimize energy consumption with an airtight, well-insulated exterior envelope. The building is expected to take advantage of the site’s access to solar, wind, and geothermal energies.
The staff and students of the Paul W. Crowley East Bay Met Campus are committed to the efficient use of the facility and to exploring innovative ways of using the building to teach and learn about sustainability, green technologies, and the environment.
RIDE’s School Construction Program pursued a design-build approach and provides a model for school construction across the State and the region. A ribbon cutting is planned for January 2014.
Click here for more information on the Met Center: http://metcenter.org/.
About The Physical Plant
• The Met Center is designed to maximize educational excellence, (quiet systems, folding partitions, airlocks that conserve heat), and to be as environmentally friendly as possible. In conjunction with the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), on behalf of the State of Rhode Island, the Met is building the first net zero State facility: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-energy_building.
• Forward thinking design elements include a rubber seal around the building that keeps heat and cool air inside depending on the season, passive solar space, and geothermal walls underground.
• The exterior terraces are designed to maintain solar heat so that students can study and play outside longer. This is not a “cells and bells” type school. Every level has a connection to the sun and the outdoors.
• The views of Narragansett Bay are among the best in Rhode Island. At night, the building can be seen from land and sea.
• Student designed wallpaper will be installed in the front vestibule on all three levels of the building.

Call for Artists Announced for Downtown Transit Center

Friday, March 8th, 2013

The City of Bloomington Arts Commission in partnership with Bloomington Transit is issuing a
Call to Artists for four separate artwork commission projects at the Downtown Transit Center currently under construction at the southeast corner of S. Walnut St. and E. 3rd St. in Bloomington, Indiana.

 

Bloomington Transit and the Arts Commission recognize that the visual quality of public space such as that at the new Downtown Transit Center has a profound impact on transit patrons and the community at large. Good design and art can improve the appearance and safety of a facility, give vibrancy to its public spaces and make patrons feel welcome – all of which contribute to creating a more livable community.

Bloomington Transit is investing approximately $104,000 towards public art at the Downtown Transit Center, with project administration provided by the Arts Commission. Four commission opportunities are available in this
Call for Artists: Custom designed and fabricated pedestrian benches and bicycle racks; a Bloomington Transit Logo Artwork and a Transit Mural.

Full project descriptions and artist selection criteria is available at www.bloomington.in.gov/arts. Deadline for applications is April 29, 2013. For more information, contact Miah Michaelsen, the Assistant Economic Development
Director for the Arts, at michaelm@bloomington.in.gov or (812) 349-3534.

REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS

INTERMODAL STATION PARKING GARAGE
WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND
BUDGET: $270,000
DEADLINE: DECEMBER 15, 2011

Artwork for the façade of the Intermodal Station Parking Garage at T. F. Green Airport, 700 Jefferson Boulevard, Warwick, RI, will be commissioned through Rhode Island’s Public Art Law, which mandates that 1% of all state capital construction and renovation funds be allocated to the purchase and maintenance of public art. Through this program the State recognizes that “public art creates a more humane environment: one of distinction, enjoyment, and pride for all citizens.”

THE PARTNERS

The Rhode Island Airport Corporation, (RIAC), operates T.F. Green Airport and the five general aviation airports in Rhode Island. A long-time supporter of public art in Rhode Island, the Rhode Island Airport Corporation has worked with the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts on a number of public art commissions for T. F. Green. The airport is centrally located just off of Interstate 95 in Warwick, Rhode Island and serves not only Rhode Island but also Southeastern Massachusetts and Eastern Connecticut.

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) is responsible for a diverse transportation system of more than 1,100 miles of roads and approximately 800 bridges that provides a variety of convenient, cost-effective mobility opportunities for people and the movement of goods to support economic development and improved quality of life.

Established in 1967, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) is charged by the state legislature to stimulate public interest and participation in the arts and to serve as the liaison to the state arts community.

THE STATION

The Interlink at T. F. Green Airport in Warwick officially opened on October 27, 2010. It offers multiple transportation alternatives, including a consolidated rental car facility serving the airport, local RI Public Transportation Authority bus service and Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority commuter rail service to Providence and Boston.
The Warwick Station District is a redevelopment opportunity of important statewide significance, bringing jobs and strengthening Rhode Island’s economy. The District centers around an intermodal facility that is unique in the United States, one which connects an airport, Amtrak and Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority service on the Northeast rail corridor, buses, Interstate I-95 and car rental agencies under one roof.
The City of Warwick and the RI Economic Development Corporation are working together with local property owners to brand and market this district in order to enable the development of a new transit village which will include hotels, offices, commercial buildings, condominiums and apartments at an urban, pedestrian-oriented scale. The District is expected to attract several hundred million dollars in development over the next decade
THE PROJECT

The Intermodal Parking Garage is a 6 level parking garage with approximately 1,800 parking spaces for rental car operators and 640 parking spaces for rail commuters. It includes a 1,200-foot, elevated, enclosed, skywalk, with moving walkways to help passengers move to and from T.F. Green Airport.
Only the facade of the garage is under consideration for a public art commission. Along Jefferson Blvd, this face is 463’-2” long. The elevation of the garage is 75’-2” above grade along Jefferson Boulevard.
A goal of the project is to make the greatest positive visual impact on this particular façade.
Proper ventilation of parking garages is mandated. Artists will be expected to design and produce a commission that meets prescribed standards. The Garage is designed as an “Open Parking Garage” per the Building Code. For natural ventilation purposes, the exterior sides of the structure shall have uniformly distributed openings. For a site to be considered “open”, the total area of openings along the side shall not be less than 50% of the interior area of the side at each tier and such openings shall be equally distributed along the length of the tier. The present condition is at the threshold required by code. The existing open area, therefore, may not be impeded. Consequently, all installations need to be placed either:

• In front of the existing solid surfaces (concrete, glass, etc.) only.
AND/OR
• Where installed over existing open areas, the installations must be installed away from openings a distance equal to or greater than the maximum dimension of the obstruction.

The proposed installation will need to receive a building permit and provide proof that the “open garage” requirement for ventilation is not violated.

On Wednesday, October 5th, panelists met on site to discuss the commission. The following are items that were introduced:

• The site just to the south will be a mixed use development which would include hotel, office and commercial space. It is owned by D’Ambra Construction, a RI construction company. An exact date of construction has not yet been announced.
• Ultimately, the City hopes that the Elizabeth Mill across the street from the garage will become residential lofts or a mixed use restoration. This mill provided employment for scores of immigrants in the 19th century.
• The City discussed the Master Plan for the District and provided a brief overview of the history of the area: http://www.warwickri.gov/pdfs/planning/WSRDMasterPlanAUGUST2011.pdf
• RISCA and the panel are interested in broadening the distribution of the RFQ in an attempt to reach minority and low-income artists. Please forward this RFQ widely.
• Rather than introduce specific content areas, the panel feels that the RFQ should remain broad. They are interested in seeing what artists will present.
• Rhode Island State Governor Chafee is committed to creating a new identity for the district. It is hoped that this public art commission will help with that effort.
• The panel is committed to the purchase of one commission.
• Freestanding work may be considered if it is of sufficient height.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Please note: This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is the first step in the public art selection process.

RISCA will conduct the Intermodal Station Parking Garage application process online, with all materials submitted in digital format through CaFÉ (see below). There is no charge to the artist for applying or for submitting digital images. At this preliminary selection stage, we are requesting submissions from artists or art teams consisting of six (6) images representing current work (completed within the past ten years), resumes, and very brief descriptions of potential site-specific proposals.

If an artist wants to apply as an individual as well as part of a team, two separate CaFÉ profiles and two separate CaFÉ applications must be completed (i.e., one application submission for you and one application submission for your team).

Applications consisting of six images, answers to designated questions, and resumes will be reviewed by the public art selection panel to assess the quality and appropriateness of the artist’s work, interest in their proposal idea, and the artist’s ability to carry out a substantial public art commission.

Applicants are asked only to provide a short description of their proposal for artwork at the site along with a rough outline of expenses for the design and construction totaling no more than $270,000. Three finalists will be selected from the pool of RFQ applicants and those finalists will craft detailed proposals including an itemized budget, scale models and renderings, and an in-depth project description. For this they will each be paid an honorarium of $2,500. This stipend includes all travel expenses: hotel, transportation, mileage, etc., for both the site visit and the subsequent presentation meeting. Finalists will not be reimbursed separately for any travel costs.

No slides or hard copy materials will be accepted for this call. First time CaFÉ applicants must allow enough time to prepare their CaFÉ formatted digital images and electronic submission prior to the deadline. CaFÉ surveys have shown that it takes approximately 2-4 hours to prepare images and submit an online application, dependent on a variety of factors.

Each application must be submitted via the CaFÉ ™ web site (www.callforentry.org) and must include:

1. A current resume for each artist. If you are applying as a team, include all team member resumes within one document.

2. Six digital images of relevant artwork. In the Description of Image, accompanying image annotation must list media, size, title, date of completion and a brief description of the artwork if necessary. Please do not present more than one view of artwork per image. If you wish to show a “detail”, include it within the six (6) artwork images.

3. A written statement, not to exceed 3,000 characters, that addresses the artist’s/team’s preliminary concept or potential approach for creating site-specific public art for the Intermodal Station Parking Garage as well as the proposed project budget. The artist’s budget must list artist’s team commission fees, anticipated cost of the installed work, and anticipated administrative costs.

ESTIMATED TIMELINE

December 15, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) Deadline for submissions
Early January 2012: panel meeting for selection of finalists
Early January 2012: Artist notification
Late January 2012: Finalist site visits
February 2012: Finalist presentations to selection panel; panel selects artist
March, 2012: Final approval by RISCA Council
TBD: Contract signed
TBD: Work installed and completed

According to law, final recommendations of the selection panel will be presented to the governing council of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts who will have final approval of the public art selection.

Finalist’s site-specific proposals should convey artist’s ideas and plans through designs, renderings and/or scale models with a statement that describes the project’s intent, proposed materials, fabrication and installation methods, and an itemized budget. Artists chosen as finalists are also asked to explain how their artwork will be sourced and fabricated. The finalists will be supplied with plans, photographs, and specific information about the Intermodal Station Parking Garage. A site visit as well as a meeting with the architect and the Intermodal administration will be scheduled for the finalists. An honorarium of $2,500 will be awarded to the finalists following presentation of their proposals. The proposals will remain the property of the artist. However, RISCA reserves the right to retain proposals for up to one year for display purposes and the right to reproduce final proposals for documentation and public information purposes.

The Public Art Selection Panel reserves the right to determine which proposal will be funded and the extent of funding. The panel also reserves the right to not accept any final proposal submitted. If the recommendations of the Public Art Selection Panel are approved by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, the selected artist/s will enter into a contract with the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts for the selected commission. The accepted artwork will be owned and maintained by the State of Rhode Island.

The commission process can be lengthy. It is within the purview of RISCA and the other commissioning agencies to request changes in the original proposal.

SELECTION CRITERIA

The panel will select the artist based on the following criteria:

1. Artistic Quality: Quality and suitability of the final proposal in relation to the project description, program goals and site descriptions.

2. Ability of the Artist/Artist Team: The artist’s ability to carry out the commission, to keep the project within budget and to complete and install the work on schedule.

3. Value: The quality and scope of the proposed completed work in relation to the commission and fees paid to the artist/artist’s team.

4. Durability of the Work: Permanence and durability of materials for this heavily used public facility. It is the artist’s responsibility to ensure that all artwork meets safety standards, adheres to building codes and other state regulations. Artworks must be durable and require minimal maintenance.

5. Collaborative Spirit: Willingness of the artist to consult with community members, the architects, landscape architects, civil engineers, general contractor and building staff (or designated representatives) to assure smooth integration of the artwork into the site and to make necessary adjustments in relation to building codes and other construction issues.

ARTIST ELIGIBILITY

This call is open to all artists. Applications may be submitted individually or in collaboration with others. The panel will not discriminate against any applicant artist on the basis of age, race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin or physical challenges.
Excluded from participation are RISCA Council members, staff and their family members as well as Public Art Selection Panel members and their families.

If you have questions about the RFQ, email Elizabeth Keithline: Elizabeth.Keithline@arts.ri.gov. If you require technical support for CAFÉ, please email cafe@westaf.org

Site Selection Committee
The selection of artwork for Percent for Art projects is overseen by a Site Selection Committee made up of site and art advisors. Site advisors include representatives from the agency or agencies housed in the building; the project architect if available; a representative from the Bureau of Public Works: Design & Construction; users of the building; and when possible, a state legislator from the district where the building is located. Art advisors include one to three individuals representing professional artists, craftspeople, art educators, or gallery directors. The meetings are facilitated by one or more staff members from the State Arts Council.
Selection Criteria
The Site Selection Committee reviews proposals submitted by artists and makes recommendations for the selection of artwork based on the following criteria:
􀂃
Quality, appropriateness, and suitability of the proposed artwork in relation to the RFP:
o
Design considerations: artworks must be durable, require minimal maintenance, meet safety standards, and adhere to building codes, and other state regulations
o
Medium, forms, and themes: suitability of the proposed medium, forms, and artistic concept to the stated themes
o
Suitability of the proposed artwork to the location
􀂃
The artist’s ability to carry out the commission, to keep the project within budget, and to complete and install the work on schedule. Assessment is based on evidence of successful projects undertaken and completed as noted in the artist’s resume and work samples.

Design Considerations
Commissioned new works and existing works for direct purchase are equally desirable for this site specific location.
Due to the nature of this public facility, all work must be durable, low-maintenance, sturdy, and easy to maintain, and must pose no hazard to the public. For example, unprotected sharp edges and breakable mediums are not appropriate.
Selected artists are expected to work cooperatively with the architect, project manager, and building staff (or designated representatives) to make necessary adjustments in relation to building codes and other construction issues, and to assure smooth installation of the work. Particular attention will be directed to meeting security and functional requirements in a building that serves a diverse group of people. Security framing for 2-dimensional artworks and secure base systems for 3-dimensional artworks are required and must be included in the proposal and budget.
Medium, Forms, & Themes
The State of New Hampshire seeks proposals for commissioned or existing art/craft works for the Second Floor Waiting Area. Desired artwork genre and mediums include, but are not limited to: painting, pastel, prints (etching, wood cut, silk screen, lithography, etc,) photography, glass, clay, mural works, collage, and low-relief wall sculpture. Undesirable mediums include fountains or the use of water, artwork that uses electricity and artwork that makes a sound, vibration, or hum (white noise).
The committee used the following words to describe the themes, metaphors, and tone that they hope the artworks will convey:
Lakes, mountains & water
People & landscapes
Soothing & non-aggressive
Education & leadership
Positive future
Tranquil & inspirational
Public service
Vacation destination
Quality of life
Strong community bonds
Industrial heritage
Local history
On-site Informational Meeting & Tour
An on-site informational meeting and tour of the Second Floor Waiting Area will be held Wednesday, September 21st at 2:00pm.

Budget
A total of up to $8,000 is available for this project.
Artists submitting proposals should include all expenses for the proposed artwork(s) and itemize these on the standardized budget form provided on page 7. Costs can include: supplies and materials; artist(s) fees; any subcontracting work related to the project; studio rental; electricity, telephone; travel costs; security base and framing systems required to secure art/craft work; installation costs (including engineering studies, if necessary); an amortized portion of yearly general liability insurance, and a small contingency percentage.
No design fees will be paid for preliminary sketches or designs submitted with the proposal.
Semi-finalists may be asked to refine their proposals or present their plans to the committee. The committee reserves the right to make a decision that is in the best interest of the project and to adjust the process as needed.
General Liability Insurance

Artists receiving contracts for Percent for Art commissions and acquisitions are required by the State Attorney General’s office to have current General Liability Insurance.

Artists are not required to have General Liability insurance at the time the proposal is submitted. However, artists selected for the project are required to submit a current Certificate of Insurance at the time of contracting to verify that a current general liability insurance policy is in place and that limits of coverage are appropriate to the scope of the project being undertaken.

If an artist has a General Liability insurance policy in place at the time of proposal and wishes to add an amortized portion of this cost to the budget at the time of submission, this should be included in the budget.

If an artist does not have General Liability insurance at the time of submission and/or the level of coverage is insufficient to address the scope of the proposed project, the line item in the budget for “insurance” can be left blank. The cost of insurance can be added to the budget after review and selection and will be included in the budget submitted to State Arts Council for approval.
Contract Approvals
The Site Selection Committee’s recommendations will be submitted to the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts Council for approval. All contracts of $2,500 and over (cumulatively within a fiscal year to an individual artist) must also be approved by the Governor and Executive Council.
Artists receiving a commission may not begin projects prior to notification of a fully approved contract. Contracts issued by the State Arts Council for the commissioning or the acquisition of artwork are typically paid in three increments. Processing of the initial payment may take 6-8 weeks. Subsequent payments may take 3-4 weeks. Artists receiving contracts are strongly encouraged to plan cash flow based upon the length of time required for processing payments.

About Percent for Art Program
The Percent for Art Program was enacted by the New Hampshire Legislature in 1979 to ensure that all forms of visual arts and crafts have an integral and important place in the public spaces of state buildings. The program seeks a genuine integration of art in architecture by giving an opportunity to building designers, planners, artists, state employees, arts professionals, and private citizens to collaborate in planning projects, and selecting, purchasing, or commissioning works of art by artists and craftspeople for state buildings.

Texas A&M University Sculpture Commission Competition

Friday, July 29th, 2011

The University Art Galleries Department is now accepting entries from professional artists to create a permanent sculpture to be housed in the Memorial Student Center (MSC) on the campus of Texas A&M University. The commission awarded to the selected artist will total $350,000. The MSC is currently undergoing a major renovation (updates about MSC renovation on http://ourmsc.tamu.edu). The installation of this sculpture will be the capstone to the entire project and is planned to coincide with the ceremonial opening of the building in September.

Selection Process
The call for artists is Phase One of the commissioning process. In this phase, the artists need to send a resume that reflects their ability to handle a project of this size along with representative images of their previous work. On the basis of the received applications, three finalists will be selected by the jury to move on to Phase Two. In Phase Two, the three finalists will receive $4,000 each to visit the College Station campus, review the site, and produce a maquette of their proposed suspended sculptural installation. If the maquette design is approved and accepted by the university, a standard contract for commissioning of artwork will be made between the university and the artist.

Sculpture Proposals
Sculpture proposals are not limited in style or medium. There is no theme for this site-specific competition. Instead artists are asked to review the architectural design of the building as a whole and propose something that will foster the vision of the MSC as a vibrant and welcoming place for students and reflect the MSC’s role as the gateway to campus.

Location
Twelfth Man Hall in 3-story void near stairwell outside Stark Galleries.

Images of the site are provided in the following links:
•Image 1 of the site location

The architectural design of the area incorporates support for a suspended object of up to 3,000 lbs as well as 110V power locations for future lighting of the sculpture. There is also 220V power and data cable available at the suspension point.

Deadline
Artists should submit their resume and images of previous work no later than October 16, 2011 by 11:59:00 p.m. CDT.
