Brief Description

The desired outcome for this public art project is innovative one-of-a-kind work that visually activates this City of Moscow Library entrance and generates high visibility. The work should be of a scale that achieves volume and/or verticality to assure a strong presence. Secondarily, the artwork should inspire daily passersby and bicyclists, enhancing their experience of the library as a place to pause. The design may be a single piece or several thematic-related elements. The work may be either freestanding or integrated into the existing concrete seating wall and/or pathways. All freestanding artwork must be set back from the sidewalk by ten feet (10’). Artists should consider this a permanent work of art, designed and engineered to be stable and durable for a minimum of thirty (30) years. Any medium appropriate for exterior siting will be considered. The artwork will need to withstand extreme changes in weather conditions.
