The Bower Sculpture Park and Gardens Request for Qualifications

The Bower Sculpture Park and Gardens Request for Qualifications

This Deadline Expired: Monday, February 18, 2019

Bridgette Mayer Art Advisors in collaboration with The Executive Committee of The Bower is seeking to commission professional artists/sculptors and or artist teams to design, oversee fabrication and install permanent site-specific sculptures or permanent land art installations as part of the launch of its Phase I Sculpture Park and Gardens.

The location is a private property that will be turned into a public sculpture park and gardens. The owners are developing “The Bower: Sculpture Park and Gardens”, a rural setting, garden and sculpture park located on their 36-acre wooded and meadow site along the northern slope of the Appalachian Mountains in Perry County, Pennsylvania.

Approximately 5-10 finalists will be chosen from the pool of applicants, those finalists will be provided an honorarium up to $1500.00* to work with Bridgette Mayer Art Advisors and feedback from the Executive Committee to develop a final proposal for the artwork. The chosen artists/teams will then be commissioned to finalize design, fabricate, ship and install the artwork.

Artists may utilize imported materials of their choosing or landforming, stone, wood or other organics from the natural setting. Total project budget is approximately $10K-30K per artist or artist team and the amount awarded will be dependent on the proposed project. It is inclusive of all costs such as artist’s fees, fabrication, travel, and installation time and effort. A separate shipping budget should also be proposed. Sculpture foundation, lighting, hardscape and landscaping requirements will be determined in collaboration with the Owners and will be addressed outside the budget established for the artwork.

APPLICATION DEADLINE
Applications must be completed by 12:00pm EST
