City of Carmel
Carmel, Indiana, United States
This major installation will serve to enhance the library’s mission to inspire lifelong discovery, facilitate collaboration and connect people with resources. It will also amplify the library’s vision which includes supporting a diverse community of people committed to learning throughout all ages, an enhanced quality of life and enriching social and cultural experiences. The City of Carmel would like the sculpture to complement the library building and also serve as a memorable place-making gateway to its well-established Arts and Design District. While this commission does not have to directly relate to the style or theme of the library architecture, it should visually complement them.
The total budget for this artwork is $400,000. This budget includes artist fees/expenses, final design, fabrication, installation costs, engineering costs, permit costs, and insurance costs. Qualifying artists will be interviewed prior to being invited to create a design proposal. Semi-finalists will receive an honorarium of $2,000 to develop and present a proposal.
