Denver's Public Art Program, managed by Denver Arts & Venues, and the Denver Performing Arts Complex (DPAC) Art Selection Panel have released a request for qualifications (RFQ) for artists who wish to work on a public art project for several of the façades within the DPAC campus.
Applications will be accepted at CallforEntry.org through June 7, 11:59 p.m. The budget for this project is $230,000 and is open nationally.
The vision is to incorporate permanent or semi-permanent artwork into the soon-to-be-built plaza at the intersection of Champa and 13th streets, enhancing the visitor experience. This plaza will be adjacent to several art and cultural activities planned by the Denver Theatre District, the Colorado Convention Center and Denver Arts & Venues. The main area for the artwork(s) will be on the building facades that surround the future plaza.
The selection panel is seeking one-of-a-kind artwork(s) appropriate for the diverse communities that visit and enjoy DPAC and the Colorado Convention Center. The panel is open to permanent or semi-permanent artwork(s), especially light-based artwork(s), projection-based artwork(s) and/or two or three-dimensional artwork(s) made from a variety of materials, and envisions artwork with interactive components.
