  • Brief Description

    Sangamon County is pleased to announce a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to professional artists or firms to create permanent original art or installations for a sculpture or piece of art that will be located indoors in a new atrium/lobby space in the Sangamon County building located in Springfield, Illinois. The county and advisory committee is interested in applications from artists who specialize in sculpture/art that could either be installed on the floor in the space or hung from the ceiling.

    This RFQ will be processed in two phases. Phase I will include collecting applications from qualified, interested artists. An advisory committee will score and choose artists from that pool who will be invited to advance to the next phase. In Phase II, the selected artists will be invited to submit a concept, budget and other information for the space for a stipend. The advisory committee will then select the finalist and concept to recommend for final approval to the Sangamon County Building and Grounds Committee and the Sangamon County Board.

    The artist and county will agree to the budget and installation timeline in the final contract.
    Application Deadline: Tuesday, October 31, 2023, Noon (central)
    *Application before the deadline is encouraged.
