Baltimore City is looking for artists to submit concepts for permanent sculptures for “Place Making” in a handful of vacant lots in Park Heights. These are some of the concepts I’ve designed and submitted for review.
What I imagine is that people will congregate around these backdrops for selfies and group pictures and post them online. I have a feeling that it could become “a thing”, originating in Baltimore but spanning to a national level.
The Indianapolis Art Center is looking for temporary sculptures to install on their grounds for an upcoming event. Here are my submission concepts.
The City of Westminster is committed to growing the appreciation for art in all forms within the community. The Big Dry Creek Trail Murals Project will provide public art in a venue that showcases the City’s open space program while encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle. This will be a multi-year project targeting the underpasses along our trail system. This will be the third project along Big Dry Creek. Last year's murals are visible from Big Dry Creek Trail near City Park Recreation Center and under Westcliff Blvd.
The Open Space Program within the City of Westminster originated over 30 years ago. Then only the second municipal open space program in the state, it now has preserved over 3,000 acres of natural areas throughout the City. Residents have valued open space as the top amenity within the City and come to identify Westminster through open space. The Big Dry Creek Trail is the City of Westminster’s showcase trail system and winds 12 miles through the heart of the City. Located on both riparian and upland prairie ecosystems, this trail is used for exercising, commuting, wildlife viewing and connecting with nature.
The City is seeking four artists: two to complete murals, during July, on either side of the underpass along Big Dry Creek Trail that goes under the railroad just east of Wadsworth Parkway (approximately 350 sq. ft.) and two to complete murals, during September, on either side of the underpass along Big Dry Creek that goes under Wadsworth Parkway. All murals will have a theme associated with human connection to nature, wellness, literacy, outdoor recreation and or/ a combination of the four. Artists hired for the RR Underpass will be paid $3,000 commission per side, and materials. Artists hired for the Wadsworth Parkway underpass will be paid $2,000 commission per side and materials.
Mike has interesting taste when it comes to home décor. While visiting his 1860’s converted farmhouse on 5 acres of gorgeous property, I was confronted with manikins dressed in period clothing, a life-sized headless horseman on horseback at the front door, and a variety of taxidermy both real and fantastical throughout the house. A macabre museum is the best way I can describe it.
It’s no surprise Mike was up for something creepy and original when it came to his stairwell mural. Below are several design concepts I presented to him.
The key words I had to start with were Moon face, old tree and roots, possibly a Ferris Wheel, with a limited pallet and muted colors.

Arlington EMS & INSPIRE: Arlington Elementary Middle School was built in Northwest Baltimore in 1926. A 1931 addition doubled the size of the school to serve the growing local population. Arlington is currently in the midst of a $35,000,000 renovation as part of the Baltimore City Public School Systems 21st Century Schools program. The renovations will retain the historic front facade while bringing the school into compliance with BCPSS’s standards of a safe and healthy contemporary learning environment.
INSPIRE seeks to leverage the investment the 21st Century Schools program in each community by enhancing the connection between the schools and the surrounding neighborhoods. Since 2015 INSPIRE planners have held community engagement meetings with the Arlington community residents and stakeholders to identify the priorities for investment and enhancement in the local community. One priority identified is the need for a community managed greenspace where residents can congregate, grow and share food, and allow children to play outdoors safely. The first such investment will be the creation of the Arlington INSPIRE community garden space.
CALL FOR ARTIST: Through the Arlington INSPIRE planning process the community identified two main priorities- 1. To beautify and make safer the vacant lots and greenspaces surrounding the school and 2. Address the issues of living in a food desert. At a community meeting focused specifically on food, residents identified the need for a garden designed as a space to grow and learn about edible foods together as a community. The garden is currently being designed by the Neighborhood Design Center and set to be installed in late Summer 2018.
This call seeks proposals for a creative and artistic gateway entrance that will welcome residents into the Arlington INSPIRE community garden. Community-based artists are encouraged to submit a simple creative concept that incorporates artwork or creative placemaking into a functional entrance to the garden. Designs should be able to be realized within the budget of this project. Proposals that provide an opportunity for students or residents to contribute to, or participate in, the creating of the gateway are encouraged. Artists’ proposals are considered an initial concept of what could be built within the project's budget. Once awarded the selected artist will be expected to work with Arlington students and local residents to realize the project. Ideally, the completed gateway will also incorporate an opportunity for a community notification board and sign.
The finished Arlington INSPIRE Community Garden will be surrounded by a security fence which may also be adorned and beautified with community generated artwork. Final logistics and budget for the fence are yet to be determined.
BOPA in partnership with the Baltimore Department of Planning INSPIRE program, seeks a qualified artist to engage and work with students and neighbors of Pimlico Elementary Middle School in the development and creation of an outdoor creative placemaking project to be incorporated in a newly established community managed greenspace near Pimlico Elementary Middle School in Park Heights.
Budget: $30,000 DEADLINE EXTENDED – 5:00pm, September 5, 2018
Community Artist RFP: Pimlico EMS INSPIRE Creative Placemaking Project Posted: June 6, 2018 Due: September 5, 2018
Applications Due ONLINE by September 5, 2018
PIMLICO EMS & INSPIRE: Pimlico Elementary Middle School was constructed in 1925, and was named after the Pimlico Race Course. Pimlico is one of the first schools to be rehabilitated and modernized through the Baltimore City Public School Systems 21st Century Schools program and is currently undergoing a $43M renovation. Pimlico is on schedule to re-open in August 2018.
INSPIRE seeks to leverage the 21st Century Schools investment by enhancing the connection between the schools and the surrounding neighborhoods. Since 2015, INSPIRE planners have held community engagement meetings to develop the Pimlico Elementary Middle School INSPIRE Plan. The Plan seeks to lead improvements in the environment and quality of life for students and families, and articulate the community’s vision for guiding local private development, and improving environmental, social and economic conditions.
CALL FOR ARTIST: This call seeks proposals for a new creative placemaking installation into the community managed greenspace project outlined as a strategic local investment in the Pimlico Planning Area INSPIRE Plan. This investment is being realized in two phases.
Phase I- included the concentrated rehab of homes along the 4800 block of Pimlico Road and the creation of two new community managed green spaces.
Phase II- iscurrently underway and will complement the award of the State’s Safe Routes to Grant and further sidewalk and streetscape improvements focused on improving pedestrian safety and traffic calming measures. The highlight of phase II is a strategic street closure that will connect the two green spaces.
The artist selected through this call will lead a community art process through the spring and summer of 2018 that results in artwork or creative elements, to be incorporated into this phase II process of building a safer- connected community green space, and improving walkability and pedestrian safety to access the school.
BUDGET: The complete budget for artist’s time materials and installation is set at $30,000 made available from the INSPIRE program. It is possible, but not guaranteed that additional grant funding or in-kind support may offset the cost of installation.
APPLICATION PROCESS: Note: This is a Request for Proposals asking artists and designers to submit conceptual renderings of their proposal. Proposal drawings are considered initial concepts and may need to undergo design revisions and adjustments prior to being fabricated and installed.

City of Loveland Art in Public Places
The Foundry Parking Garage
The City of Loveland Art in Public Places is accepting Requests for Qualifications for artists working in two-dimensional media to design and create artworks for The Foundry parking garage in downtown Loveland. The Foundry is a sweeping redevelopment of nearly three city blocks in southern downtown Loveland which will provide a strong foundation for the revitalization of Loveland’s historic downtown. The commission has a strong preference for artists working with dynamic and colorful media (painters, multi-media, mosaic artists, etc.). Public artwork will be prominently featured throughout this development through permanent installations, annual public art projects and temporary installations. Two areas have been identified for public art installations on the City’s public parking structure:
1) Lincoln Avenue: The Lincoln Avenue side of the parking garage is highly visible as it faces Highway 287, the main highway through downtown Loveland. The art installation will be supported upon a concrete wall measuring 30’ x 54’.
2) Second Street: Second Street is the main entrance into the parking structure and faces an adjacent hotel which is currently under construction. This location measures approximately 108’ wide x 44’ tall. All or part of this surface could be used for public artwork.
A maximum of $150,000 has been allocated for The Foundry parking garage. This budget includes all design, structural engineering, fabrication, equipment, insurance, installation, travel, contingency and incidental costs. The City of Loveland reserves the right to withdraw from the project prior to such time as a contract is formally entered into with the artist. Contract provisions will apply subsequent to the agreement to such by both parties. The application deadline is Friday, October 19, 2018.
In February 2016, Brinkman Partners emerged as the City’s choice in a competitive search for downtown redevelopment proposals. Brinkman’s subsequent proposal, The Foundry, pays homage to Loveland’s reputation as a showcase for art, especially sculpture, and celebrates the local foundries where artists from across the world come to cast their work. Construction began in spring 2017 to transform the City’s downtown corridor into a new epicenter of entertainment with movie theater, hotel, apartments, offices, retailers, and ample downtown parking. (For more details on the overall scope of The Foundry, please see http://www.cityofloveland.org/departments/economic-development/the-foundry-downtown-loveland-s-new-horizon). The parking garage is currently open for public use.
Scope and Project Description
The Artist/Artist Team will be asked to develop artwork that:
• provides vibrancy and color to the concrete structure
• provides immediate visual impact
• is fabricated from any suitable outdoor material
• allows for ample air circulation within the parking structure
• enhances the overall aesthetics of The Foundry development
The Texas Tech University System seeks to commission a professional artist(s) to create site-specific sculpture(s) or installation to be placed at the Athletic Dining Facility. The artist has the option to present a concept for either an interior or exterior piece. Construction of the facility will be completed by July 2019.
The interior option calls for interested artists to create an architectural art glass window to be located above the main entryway (see renderings in the additional resources). This glass will receive direct sunlight and should be visible to exterior passersby and users of the building. Use of color is highly encouraged.
The exterior option calls for sculptural seating to create a gathering space for passersby and users of the building. Mosaic tile or other colorful media is highly encouraged.
The Athletic Dining Facility will serve the nutritional needs of approximately 400 student athletes. The facility will include multiple dining environments, educational kitchen, and a full-service kitchen. The new facility will be located near Jones AT&T Stadium, the Frazier Alumni Pavilion, and Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park and will be a very high-traffic area.
Safety is imperative; durable, low-maintenance materials are recommended to withstand West Texas’ intense weather conditions. As this facility will be in use for student athletes and could be used as a recruitment tool, ideal submissions should reflect the spirit of Texas Tech University. School colors are red and black and should be utilized, as well as artistic representations of symbols related to TTU school spirit.
Any concepts that may be considered polemic or political should be avoided. Artists should attempt to create a design that speaks to the athletes that attend Texas Tech University.
Public art near this location include “Masked Rider” by Grant Speed, “Run” by Simon Donovan and Ben Olmstead, and “Universal Signs” by Barbara Grygutis (see photos in additional resources).

Wellfound Behavioral Health Hospital is calling local artists to submit work for consideration in the new facility.
We are nearing the final stages of construction of Wellfound Behavioral Health Hospital, a brand-new facility with 120 inpatient beds in Tacoma, Washington. The hospital, which is scheduled to open in early 2019, will provide voluntary and involuntary admissions with a focus on general adult psychiatric care, crisis stabilization and outpatient services. Once the facility is running at full capacity, it will serve approximately 5,000 patients each year, addressing a critical lack of access to behavioral health care in Pierce County.
Wellfound Behavioral Health Hospital is a unique joint venture of two of the largest, longest-serving nonprofit health systems in Washington state – CHI Franciscan Health and MultiCare Health System.
The name Wellfound is a nautical term that conveys a meaning of readiness and having the tools and supplies necessary for a safe voyage. The nautical theme will be reflected throughout the new hospital is signage, colors, names of patient areas and, artwork. PROJECT DETAILS: Wellfound Behavioral Health Hospital is in search of a muralist to complete a hand-painted mural on two adjacent walls within the corridor and lobby. (See attached image.) The muralist will be selected by a panel of local artists and community leaders. If submitting for both wall locations, the design should flow from one wall to the next. Artists may submit proposals for the lobby wall only (9’5”H x 18’5”W) or a proposal that extends down the corridor (an additional 9’5” x 24’10”). THEME: The hospital has chosen a Northwest Nautical theme. While not required as part of the mural proposal, there is a focus on maritime imagery.
