PHOENIX, AZ — The city of Phoenix is looking for an artist or a team of artists specializing in three-dimensional works to produce two sculptural monuments.

These monuments will be presented to commemorate the diversity and unique spirit of the Eastlake Park community's deep history and extending evolution as a growing downtown Phoenix neighborhood.

The gateway monuments will be placed on the southwest corner of 16th and Washington streets, and on the southwest corner of 16th and Jefferson streets in the Eastlake Park neighborhood.

Artists from Arizona are encouraged to apply. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process is open to professional artists with expertise in three-dimensional artwork in durable media, who have project experience and collaborative design.

There is an Information Session on June 17 to provide prospective applicants more information about the RFQ. For those that cannot attend, this meeting will be recorded and available online at Phoenix Arts and Culture Youtube Page. Final RFQ submissions are due on July 9, 2021.

The chosen artist(s) will work together with the community and the city to capture the unique spirit of the community, by designing the street sculptures.
