  • Brief Description

    The City Mark Project is intended to give Rochester a new permanent physical Artwork that recognizes and celebrates the City Mark design. The Artwork should be unique, prominent and iconic, and should celebrate the “City Mark,” the five-petaled symbol of Rochester’s “Flour City” past and “Flower City” present that has become a sign of community pride.

    The primary focal point for the Artwork is the center point of the Sister Cities Bridge over the Genesee River, where three bridge segments intersect. Potential secondary locations are located to the east and west of the bridge. The contract resulting from this RFQ process will include design, fabrication, transport, and installation of this proposed work of public art.

    Up to three artists will be selected as finalists, and will receive a stipend in the amount of $1,500 to prepare a conceptual design for the Project.
