    Project Background
    Together Center is under construction on an expanded, dynamic new nonprofit center with the addition of 280 units of family-focused affordable housing on the upper levels. Working with our human service provider partners, we have designed exciting community aspects for the new Together Center including a welcoming public lobby, suites in which to best provide services, communal teaching kitchen, multicultural event and gathering spaces, a social-purpose coworking area, an indoor/outdoor lounge for nonprofit worker respite, and a small community art gallery.
    Scope of Work
    Together Center will select up to 4 works of art from up to 4 artists to enhance our interior spaces. Installation will be coordinated in early to mid-2023 upon completion of the Project. Planned Artwork Location and Budget Location: 4 locations throughout the Mountain (B) building (2 lobby, 1 community kitchen, 1 hallway outside of event center). See Presentation Plan addendum.Budget: $20,000 for 4 pieces of artwork ($3,000-$5,000 per piece)Details: Wall art. Ideally this is 2D, text, or relief wall pieces (that protrude no more than 4” off the wall). All pieces will be required to be easily installed securing on the walls indicated. If the piece is particular heavy the artist must indicate the weight along with the planned installation method when making the proposal. All pieces are within publicly accessible spaces so therefore secure to wall and not easily removable.
