Brief Description

Boise City invites public artists to apply for an opportunity to design and fabricate public artwork(s) for the public right-of-way along Vista Avenue in the Depot Bench Neighborhood in Boise, ID. The artwork will be sited in a terraced, landscaped area along a major arterial avenue which runs through the Depot Bench Neighborhood and between the Boise Airport, I-84, Boise State University, and the downtown core. The artwork seeks to highlight and celebrate the unique and iconic features of the Depot Bench Neighborhood. There is potential for a singular artwork, a pair for a sense of entryway or gateway or for a series that spans the entire area. Up to three artists may be selected as finalists who will be invited to visit the site, project team, the neighborhood and be interviewed by members of the selection committee.
