PHDC Seeks Experienced Artists for NEW RFQ

PHDC Seeks Experienced Artists for NEW RFQ

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, June 10, 2021

PHDC’s Percent for Art Program and the University of Pennsylvania seek to commission a high quality, original, and site-specific public artwork that is integrated with the building’s design. The 34th Street corridor is a popular pedestrian route and Chestnut Street a major arterial for cars and cyclists through the city, making the site highly visible to a wide variety of travelers. This prominent corner is an opportunity for the artwork to respond to this site and contribute to an engaging and inviting public environment for all. The goal of this project is to create artwork that makes the approach to this building welcoming and inclusive to all neighbors, Philadelphians, students, and visitors. Artists and artist teams, potentially including landscape architects, with experience generating high-quality works of public art are encouraged to apply. Applicants do not need to be Philadelphia-based in order to be eligible but should have a strong focus on community engagement and cultural sensitivity of the location when considering this project. All questions and requests for additional information should be directed in writing to art@phdc.phila.gov with “Penn Data Science Building Public Art RFQ” in the subject line. Questions will only be accepted until May 7, 2021 (5/7/21). Questions and/or requests for additional information and PHDC’s responses to them will be posted on the PHDC website. To learn more and to apply, please visit: https://phdcphila.org/rfps-rfqs-sales/professional-services-rfps/.

Applicants must submit their application no later than June 10, 2021 at 5:00 PM; absolutely no application will be accepted after that time.
