Brief Description

The committee is seeking a large interior kinetic sculpture, mural, or installation public art project. The proposed site of the commissioned artwork is in the newly constructed stairwell, in the Performing Arts Center (formally the Peru State College Theatre), bathed in natural light by a large window and lit at night. The window faces the campus quad, making the sculpture highly visible from the interior and exterior of the Performing Arts Center. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) competition is open to professional artists or teams above age 18 from Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, and Kansas. The committee seeks artists who can design innovative and thought-provoking projects that relate to the proposed space in an engaging manner. Three finalists will present proposals in Peru, NE and receive travel stipends. Proposals should include a concept, design, project calendar and budget.
