Oregon City Arts Commission – RFP Public Art- Sculpture

Deadline March 05, 2024

The Oregon City Arts Commission seeks an artist, or artist team, to create a replacement sculpture for Oregon City’s public art collection. The artwork will be located on the northwest corner of 7th and Center Streets in Oregon City.

The new artwork will replace a piece called “Ancient Voices” by the artist Carole Turner, that was permanently damaged due to a car accident. Photographs of the intended location for the new piece and the previous artwork are included in the City’s RFP (contact agriffin@orcity.org). Please note that the Arts Commission is not looking to emulate the former piece. Rather, artists should share their vision for new artwork that will become a mid-town Oregon City landmark.

The selected artist will receive up to $20,000 for the design, fabrication, and installation of a new sculptural artwork. Fifty percent (50%) of payment will be made by check or digital transfer upon notice of award, with the remaining 50% of funds awarded after the final installation of the artwork.
