Brief Description

Through the Oregon Arts Commission’s Art in Public Places Program, the Oregon Judicial Department seeks to commission interior artwork for the Oregon Supreme Court Building. Artists are invited to submit their qualifications for consideration. The RFQ solicitation and selection process is to be inclusive, encouraging a diverse selection of artists to apply, including women; artists from communities of color; LGBTQ+; and emerging artists.

The Percent for Art selection committee has proposed specific locations that would be best suited for art installations within the historical building, which is considered by many to itself be a work of art. Artists are invited to consider site-specific artworks for the grand staircase walls, the floor area in a portion of the courtroom, and/or the large side walls in the courtroom.
