The City of Denver Public Art Program is pleased to announce a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for a public art project at the soon-to-be-renovated McNichols Civic Center Building located at 144 W. Colfax in Denver. The entry of the historic building will be re-designed in a way to create a new community gathering space and increase the visibility of the building. Construction is set to begin in August, 2015. The selection panel is interested in commissioning an artist or group of artists to collaborate with the design team to integrate artwork that can successfully connect the exterior/façade of the building with the interior activities, which include cultural and civic events, as well as private events. Artists are encouraged to view the McNichols History and New Entry Plan document that provides a history of the building as well as the current design plan. Artists are also encouraged to view the Civic Center Master Plan Design Guidelines.

Here is the detailed McNichols Building RFQ.
