Brief Description

ECAGI and APPT are issuing a Request for Artist Qualifications (RFQ) with the intent of selecting 3 or more artists to submit proposals to design and fabricate a monument to be the focal point of the new Veterans Monument and Veterans Yard area.

ECAGI and APPT are looking for artists or design firms who can design, fabricate and install the monument at the identified location in Evergreen Cemetery. The artist or design firm must have significant experience creating public art, outdoor sculpture or cemetery monuments and have created work that responds to themes fitting the profound nature of this project. Where the monument may be a freestanding piece, ECAGI and APPT are also open to a design concept that considers the surrounding environment and incorporates seating for event attendees.
