Brief Description

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are sought from artists interested in creating a large scale illuminated sculpture that will serve as a celebratory landmark along Highway 10 and the community of Cloverdale. The artwork will be memorable and highly visible; utilize light and color; and serve as an opportunity for storytelling. The public art sculpture will be located beside the roadway, immediately south of Heritage Square. The design will be aesthetically pleasing during both day and night. Artists may choose to repurpose the footing and electrical conduit of a soon to be decommissioned electronic sign or create a new footing(s) for their design. Artists also have the option to propose a group of sculptures or a single sculpture with multiple footings. Illumination for this project will need to be durable and easily maintained, sensitive to wildlife, and not be hazardous to motorists.
