Bid Title: Call for Proposals: Iowa River Landing Sculpture Park
Category: Bid Postings: Services
Status: Closed

Description:
This project includes the selection and installation of ten permanent outdoor sculptures for public enjoyment and appreciation in Coralville’s Iowa River Landing. This project will include the work of exclusively Iowa artists and the theme of each piece will be tied to the Iowa Writers’ Library located in the Marriott Hotel.

The interest in the Iowa Writers’ Library and the Marriott artwork, the designation of the area as a UNESCO City of Literature, and the importance of public art in general have led the City to develop a plan for an outdoor Sculpture Park in the Iowa River Landing based on those themes: sculptures created by Iowa artists based on the work of authors associated with the Iowa Writers’ Library. In addition to signage at each sculpture, a brochure will be created as a walking tour guide to provide information about each artist, his or her inspiration, how it relates to the theme, and as a general guide in locating each piece.

This project is made possible with a grant from the Iowa Great Places program of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.

RFP Amended May 9, 2013
The amended RFP notes the generous support of an Iowa Great Places grant through the Department of Cultural Affairs; the role of the selection committee in selecting and rejecting proposals; and the clarification that artists may submit more than one proposal.
