  • Brief Description

    The Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA) invites artists to provide proposals to temporarily install a work of art outdoors at the Indianapolis International Airport. This opportunity is for one pre-existing, free-standing work of art to remain on display in the North Terminal Garden for two (2) years. IAA will pay the artist of the selected artwork a fee of $5,000 for the two-year loan period; in addition, the IAA will reimburse the artist for up to $5,000 for expenses. To be considered, the artwork must fit within the established engineering guidelines for the selected site, be durable, be impervious to weather (unless natural weathering is essential to the concept of the artwork), be low-maintenance and be suitable in form, material and content for a mixed-ages audience that will include young children. Artists responding to this RFP must be at least 18 years of age and reside in the states of Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, Wisconsin, or Missouri.
