Brief Description

The City of Redwood City, in partnership with the Port of Redwood City, and Sims Metal Management, is seeking proposals for a community-driven project to recognize First Responders within San Mateo County, who daily serve to protect the citizenry, and to memorialize those who have perished working tirelessly to safeguard lives and liberty. Importantly, this world class monument will honor those who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks on the United States. The artwork should be imaginative in design and content. Artists and designers are asked to consider that the public might visit at all hours and make suggestions for appropriate lighting. The feeling of the space can be traditional. It can be modern. It is vital, however, that it honors and celebrates those who serve. In fact, prospective artists and teams may draw.
