Brief Description

The City Art Board seeks an artist or artist team to create a site-specific indoor project to be designed for the central pillar in the lobby of Las Cruces City Hall. The commissioned artwork will engage the public and the staff at City Hall and should reflect the architectural setting, the purposes of the building, and the City of Las Cruces. Finalists will be encouraged to submit vibrant and dynamic designs inspired by our local environment, history and cultures. The City Art Board seeks artwork that is large enough in scale and scope to provide a focal point and to create appreciation of the space. The location is a pillar in the lobby of City Hall. The art selected will be the centerpiece of city government. The artwork can be made of a single or a mixed media which must be durable, long-lasting (life of the building), safe and low maintenance. The artwork can be kinetic or static, 2D and/or 3D, and should include all four sides of the pillar.
