Brief Description

The City of Moorhead is seeking a qualified artist and/or team to develop an iconic symbol for the community that will visually tell the world just who Moorhead is while exemplifying a collaborative approach to develop an artistic design with expertise in: Visual art, Lighting design (optional, but preferred), Community engagement facilitation, and Technical coordination. Moorhead Public Service has contracted with a company to install the artwork on the existing I-94 water tower as part of the tower rehabilitation project. Therefore, physically painting the art on the water tower is not included in the scope of this Call for Artist. If a lighting component is included, the city will work with the artist/team to develop specification documents. With interstate highway traffic at this location reaching over 43,000 trips per day, this project will be the most visible and most viewed artistic application in the city.
