Brief Description

The City of Monticello's arts program, MontiArts, is issuing a call for a large scale outdoor public sculpture to be installed in a premier river front park downtown. The sculpture will be attached to a footing provided by the city, and must be durable enough to withstand MN's 4 season weather. The sculpture will be set into a landscaped area off a paved trail, overlooking the Mississippi River. See included site pics for a sense of scale desired. This is a prominent space in one of our most popular parks. Over the past 3 years, Monticello has embarked on an ambitious public art program. In a city that is already home to a number of high quality public sculptures, we'd like this sculpture to be the cornerstone of a larger public bikeable/walkable public sculpture exhibit we'll be launching over the next several years. City workers can help with installation.
