Brief Description

Chicago Sculpture International, in collaboration with the Chicago Park District, is seeking experienced artists to give dying trees in Chicago parks new life. We are looking for a variety of artistic approaches that will celebrate the life of the tree and its impact on the green space. This RFP seeks an experienced artist (or artist team) to turn the tree into a sculpture. We are seeking beautiful, original, unique sculptural objects that will become a distinguishing feature in the neighborhood. The approach can be additive and/or subtractive. The trees will be approximately 16-30 ft. tall and may include main side branches.
