Brief Description

The City of Sugar Land’s Public Art Program is pleased to partner with the Economic Development Department and the Public Works Department in offering this opportunity. In November 2016, the Public Art Plan was adopted by City Council outlining a vision and programmatic direction for public art in Sugar Land. Civic infrastructure projects are one of the categories of projects determined to be most meaningful to Sugar Land and a priority for the Public Art Program’s resources. In 2017 the east side of the Brooks Street Bridge was enhanced with a concrete pedestrian sidewalk and railing. In 2019 additional enhancements to the west side of the bridge will take place as well as lighting increasing visibility. Simultaneous to the 2019 capital construction project, this public call to artists will seek proposals that will enhance the two walls with an artwork (mosaic, mural or other enhancement) appropriate for the concrete wall, and durable.
