Tualatin Valley Creates (TVC) is growing Washington County’s public art portfolio. Thanks to capital support approved by Washington County Commissioners, TVC will be commissioning four new artworks in what is being called Musical Benches Public Art Collection. Each will be strategically placed in order to highlight qualities of particular communities, enhance existing events, and/or to bring foot traffic to under-utilized areas.
The Request for Proposals is now open. TVC worked closely with its partners Forest Grove Art Commission, Tigard Downtown Alliance, Art Design Situation and the City of Tigard, Beaverton Downtown Association and Beaverton Art Program, and Cedar Mill Business Association to develop the scope of this collection. Design requirements include that the artwork should be kinetic, sound-making and/or physically engaging in some way; artwork should be pedestrian scale and ADA compliant; the bench should seat no less than 3 grown adults; and materials should be suitable for outdoor settings.
For questions about the project please contact Tualatin Valley Creates at 503-567-1713 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The call for submissions is also cross-listed on Art Deadlines List.
