We are excited to announce a NEW opportunity for Artists / Artist Teams!

Sunset Road Bridge Project

Pima County | District 1

Budget for Artwork: $95,000
Application Deadline: April 7, 2022 by 11:59pm  Arizona Time


In collaboration with Pima County, the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona (Arts Foundation) is seeking a qualified Public Artist or Artist Team for commission. 


Sunset Rd Bridge (future construction) will connect Sunset Rd. to the North bank of the Rillito River and to River Rd. A gabion wall approximately 230’ x 15’ beneath the bridge will serve as the mounting surface for the artwork. The Chuck Huckleberry Loop runs parallel to the wall and the artwork will be viewed by pedestrian and bicycle traffic extensively.

The artwork is limited to the location of the gabion wall. Placement of the artwork will need to take into consideration that this path is frequented by bicycle and pedestrian traffic and cannot compromise safe use of the path. See Supplementary Resources links provided at the top of the Guidelines.


The all-inclusive budget of $95,000 for artwork must cover all costs related to: design, materials, production, transportation and installation of the artwork; permits, taxes, and insurance that may be required by the City of Tucson or Pima County; soil analysis, engineering, and mounting for the artwork.
