Brief Description

The Reno Arts & Culture Commission (RACC) is seeking proposals from artists for a public art opportunity in Somersett West Park in Reno, NV. Artists working in the United States and who have experience designing projects with a similar budget and scope are encouraged to apply.

Project Description:
The Reno Arts & Culture Commission is looking for an artist/artist team to design and create art for Somersett West Park in the Somersett planned community. Somersett West Park was completed in June of 2020.

The goals for the project include: creating a unique character for a specific area of town, increasing public awareness of art, enhancing the park space, and broadening visitors’ perspectives of public spaces within the City.

The artist(s) selected should have demonstrated experience working in public locations subject to vandalism and weather. Please note this area is subject to high winds.

RACC seeks artists with public art experience. The $30,000 commission will cover all services from design through final installation/implementation, including artist fee, fabrication, insurance, transportation, travel fees, and installation.
Final selection of one artist or team will be made by the PAC, RACC, and stakeholders based on proposal and qualifications. This project is funded by the 2% for Public Art Ordinance/Public Art Fund.
