The City of Valdez, Office of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services, and The Port Valdez Company invite Artists and Artist Teams to submit their qualifications for a City of Valdez Founders Memorial sculpture project at or near the intersection of Hazelet Avenue and Faldago Drive. The project will welcome visitors to the NEW Hazelet-Meals Wilderness Trail on Meals Hill. We are seeking an artist or artist team to design, fabricate, and install this memorial artwork as a tribute to its founders George Cheever Hazelet and Andrew Jackson Meals, an entrance gateway to the newly formed conservation easement identified as Meals Hill.
Three finalists will be selected to develop site-specific proposals and present them to the committee. Each finalist will receive a $2,500 honorarium to develop a proposal.
