Brief Description

The City’s existing roundabout at S Ridgeview Rd and E Sheridan St is in a high traffic location with good sightlines from a distance that lends itself well to a public art piece that will enhance the experience of driving through the community. Seeking proposals for either an existing sculpture that will fit the site, or ideas for original work to be commissioned for the site that can meet the deadline of a March 2022 installation.

The artwork should be appreciated from a distance, not requiring up-close or extended inspection. Interactive artwork is discouraged, so as not to encourage pedestrian activity in the roundabout.
