  • Brief Description

    The City of Bend in partnership with Art in Public Places (AiPP) invites professional Artists to apply for a public art commission in connection with the construction of a new Headquarters Building on the Public Works Campus in Bend, Oregon. The Headquarters Building will be the ­gateway of the new Public Works Campus for any public visitors or other City of Bend departments coming to the campus.

    The commission is for a large-scale work of art on three prominent walls in the public lobbies and outdoor terrace of the main Headquarters Building on the Public Works Campus. The work of art should be one continuous idea that spans between the three walls. The lobby is a 2-story vaulted space and the work of art will continue up to the third-floor lobby wall and outside to a third-floor terrace. The project timeline is 2024-2025 and the project budget is $185,000.

    Artists must reside in one of the following states: Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico or Texas. Additionally, the City of Bend is dedicated to nurturing, promoting, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. We actively encourage individuals from Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities, persons with disabilities, women, and LGBTQIA+ artists to apply. Furthermore, we value and support the participation of local artists in this initiative.
