Brief Description

Riverfront Recapture and the Joe Marfuggi Riverwalk Public Art Committee (The Committee) have opened a RFQ to identify qualified artists interested in developing site-specific permanent artwork to be installed along the Joe Marfuggi Riverwalk. This RFQ is the first phase of a two-phase process, the second is a RFP, where selected artists will provide their vision and ideas for the project. The Joe Marfuggi Riverwalk is to be a celebration of Riverfront Recapture’s success led by a beloved man who encouraged participation by the example of hard work and an impish sense of humor. The Riverwalk will extend 2.5 miles from Riverside Park to Windsor Meadows, creating connections through our future park to Windsor, South Windsor, and Keney Park. This opportunity is open to professional or emerging/student artists 18 years of age and older residing in a state with the Connecticut River passing through or being its border may apply.
