Brief Description

Brookfield Residential and the City of Avondale are seeking to commission a unique permanent signature artwork installation for Alamar Park, a new 40-acre regional park currently under construction in Avondale, Arizona. It is hoped that the artwork will be both engaging and interactive for visitors to this new regional destination park and community amenity. The artwork respond to the context of its location and should draw people in, invite engagement and interaction and create memorable moments. Avondale, incorporated in 1946, is a rapidly growing community west of Phoenix in Maricopa County, situated adjacent to the Estrella Mountain Regional Park and just north of the Gila River along the Agua Fria river corridor. It is a growing West Valley community of about 84,000 residents (per 2017). Art and creativity are priorities for the City of Avondale.
