MuncieArts and the City of Muncie invites artists and artist teams working in the public realm in
a variety of 2D and 3D visual media and artistic approaches at all stages of their artistic career to
submit qualifications for inclusion in a Prequalified Artist Pool for upcoming public art
opportunities. A list of visual artistic disciplines may include but not be limited to painting,
sculpture, mural, mosaic, illustration, photography, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, new
media and digital art, decorative arts (ceramic, pottery, jewelry, glass), architecturally integrated
installations, social practice-based art, environmental and earth art. A list of eligible artists
selected for the Prequalified Artist Pool will be used by the MuncieArts staff and committees to
recommend appropriate applicants for a range of permanent and temporary public art
opportunities. Outdoor public artworks, including sculpture, installation, and murals are being planned through 2024, with project budgets ranging between $5,000 to $150,000.
All public art opportunities are required to have an artist-led community engagement component
during the project development stage. Artists invited to be part of the Prequalified Pool will be
selected based on the relevance of their previous experience, demonstrated artistic practice, and
commitment to public engagement, equity, and access.
Application will remain open until December 31, 2023. Early application is encouraged.
Questions not answered in the RFQ Instruction Document (available to download at www.munciearts.org/rfq) can be directed to email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: Inclusion in the Prequalified Artist Pool does not guarantee selection for any
projects. The MuncieArts staff reserves the right to launch separate calls for artists for individual
projects and special initiatives.
