  • Brief Description

    The City of Mesa is seeking artists, artist teams, or makers through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) interested in participating in an inspiring effort to engage the citizens of Mesa in exploring and celebrating diversity in their community/city through participatory temporary public art engagements that will result in a cumulative temporary public art installation at Mesa’s new City Hall. The intention for the Together Mesa public art project is to acknowledge the cultural depth and breadth of our vibrant city. The public art for this opportunity should serve as a beacon to viewers communicating that Mesa is an innovative, welcoming community that places a high value on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

    One artist or artist team will be commissioned for this opportunity. Interested artists or artist teams will submit their qualifications in response to this RFQ for review by the selection committee, which will convene to review all submissions received in response to this RFQ and establish a list of three to five finalists to create proposals for further review and consideration. No renderings or concepts are required at this time.

    Please see commission document for full project information and submission instructions.

    5/18/23 *UPDATE*- The commissioners for this opportunity have extended the deadline to June 5, 2023.
