The Allentown Arts Commission, in partnership with Materials Conservation of Philadelphia, seeks artist responses via this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to commission an original, site‐specific work of art. The work of art will be located on the western side façade of the RB Collection at 107 Hamilton Street. The work of art may take the form of mural, low‐relief sculpture or other appropriate forms of art (or a combination of these), and is open to artists with the demonstrated capacity to create a fully‐realized work of art in any of those forms. Allentown and Lehigh Valley‐based artists, female artists and artists of color are encouraged to apply. The public art program is committed to reflecting the diversity of the City of Allentown in our selection process. Complete applications that meet threshold eligibility will be considered.

Sandra's colorful and expressive abstract paintings and collages are about "place", and take inspiration from the landscape - While the artworks are not a representation of any specific location, they oftentimes are evocative of landscape. She invites the viewer to engage with her artworks through memory, imagination, and reverie. Working with oil paint, oil pigment sticks, watercolor and other media, her paintings and collages have been described by a curator as “visceral and expressive”.
