Brief Description

The Montgomery County Law Enforcement Memorial Association is a non-profit organization representing law enforcement agencies in southwest Ohio, including Dayton. Its mission is to help the families and coworkers of this county’s officers tragically killed or seriously injured in the line of duty. Its goal is to build a permanent outdoor memorial in honor of those fallen heroes, on a 1.03-acre site in downtown Dayton (by 10/01/21).

The Memorial Association is seeking design proposals from professional artists living in the U.S. within a 6-hour drive of Dayton, Ohio. Their submissions (due 12/01/20) will be judged by the Association’s Juried Arts Committee, which will initially select three semi-finalists and from those a winner. The winner will be awarded a $150,000 commission to finalize, fabricate, transport, and install the memorial. The Association will also provide that artist up to an additional $50,000 for landscaping, and pay up to $25,000 for the costs of site preparation.
