Brief Description

The Marquette Public Arts Commission (MPAC) is seeking a qualified artist (“vendor”) or artist team to design (“artwork”) and paint a site-specific artwork on the surface of the Hurley Park Basketball Court, Marquette, MI. The vendor will organize/lead any necessary workers or volunteers through the painting of the court surface with their artwork. MPAC will review responses to this RFQ and select up to three finalists to submit design proposals. Finalists will be compensated $200 to present a full-color design comp for the court. Finalists will retain copyright to all sketches not selected.

In addition to creating and producing the artwork for this project, the commissioned vendor will work collaboratively with MPAC and the Arts & Culture Staff in development of plans for the implementation of their artwork including: schedule and installation, procurement of the appropriate paint and materials, and specifications for the artwork’s installation and maintenance.
