REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS
DENVER UNION STATION PUBLIC ART PROJECT
BUDGET: approximately $500,000 USD
DEADLINE: Saturday, June 1, 5:00 pm MST
Denver Union Station Project Authority (DUSPA) is seeking an artist, or artist team, for a site-specific public art commission that will enhance this expansive, multimodal transportation project - the largest transit redevelopment project in North America.
The art selection process will be managed by Denver Arts & Venues Public Art staff, but this project is not a City and County of Denver One Percent for Art project. The funds are administered by the Denver Union Station Project Authority (DUSPA). Possible locations and themes within the transit platforms and plazas have been identified. This commission is open to artists/artist teams working in all media, but the work must have a presence during both day and night. The estimated budget of $500,000 USD is all inclusive.
