Brief Description

Art in Public Places, Bend Park and Recreation District and Bend Park Foundation seek to commission a permanent large scale work of art in Alpenglow Park. This is an open competition for professional artists residing in the Northwest and Southwest United States, specifically Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah. The project timeline is 2021-2022 and the total project budget is $130,000. Artists applications can be submitted through October 20, 2021 on CAFE.
We welcome the possibility of kinetic or solar powered elements and we are open to a variety of mediums and techniques provided that the work of art is durable, weather and vandal resistant. This Park is the first "off grid" community park in Bend and we are open to reviewing sculptures with lighting/up lighting with a solar powered power source (solar panels and infrastructure) that is built into the overall installation and project budget of the sculpture.
