Brief Description

The Reno Arts & Culture Commission is looking for an artist/artist team to design and create sculptural banners—kinetic or static or a combination of the two—for light poles in the newly redesigned Midtown District.

All of the poles will have interchangeable printed banners. The sculptural, more permanent, artist-designed banners will go on a portion of the poles and will need to work in tandem with the printed banners. There is also potential to remove some of the printed banners. There are approximately 120 light poles that sculptural banners could be placed on. The RACC is looking for a minimum of 40 sculptural banners. The sculptures can be attached to the poles in various locations but must not be reachable by pedestrian traffic and not interfere with the traffic lane (this is a major bus route). The light poles are 18 feet high. The printed banners are hung with a bottom clearance of 13 feet. The maximum weight for the sculptural banners cannot exceed 10 pounds.
