  • Brief Description

    The Bernalillo County Arts Board solicits a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for artists or artists’ teams for a site-specific public art project that will be located along the expansion of Sunport Boulevard in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The established budget for the project is $60,000. Artists working in a variety of media including sculpture, murals, and mosaics are invited to apply. The artwork may be installed in one or multiple locations along the expansion, which is roughly 0.5 miles in length from Interstate 25 to Broadway Boulevard. The design of the project should have a strong visual impact for both motorists and pedestrians traveling on Sunport Boulevard.

    The artist or artist’s team selected for the project will work closely with the communities in the area to develop an artwork that serves to represent the history and cultures of the region. The winning artist or team will be responsible for all aspects of design, construction and installation.
