Brief Description

Opportunities for public art are located within four pedestrian gathering locations complete with benches, pedestrian level lights, plantings, drinking fountains, waste receptacles, and wayfinding signage. Generally the artwork(s) should be visually engaging and compliment the aesthetic of the new streetscaping, while being sensitive to the nature of activities that occur within the immediate area (i.e. vehicle traffic, walking, biking, and shopping). Location 3: Roe Crest Node SW – Located on the SW corner of Commerce and Roe Crest, this corner is a pedestrian heavy area with resident and corporate business walkers, school children and the location of Golden Heart Daycare Center on the corner. The City is requesting proposals for an Interactive Artwork that will engage with pedestrians using the trail system, residents, employees and school children walking along Commerce and Roe Crest. The use of color is highly encouraged.
