Pre-Qualified Artist List – Tempe Public Art Opportunity – City of Tempe
Deadline: December 18, 2019 (11:59 PM MST)
The City of Tempe invites Arizona artists to submit qualifications for inclusion in an artist prequalified vendor list that will be used to select artists for upcoming projects with budgets ranging between $5,000 and $75,000. Those included on the Pre-Qualified Artist list are not guaranteed a commission; the list will be used by the City of Tempe and shared as a resource to others looking for an artist for private and grant-funded projects in Tempe. Examples include developers looking to commission artwork in Tempe, residents looking to commission an artist in conjunction with neighborhood grants, and as a pool for city projects when timing does not allow for an open call to artists. The list will be publicly accessible via the Tempe Public Art website and made available to other commissioning agencies in the valley. For more information and to apply, click here.
