The Fairbanks North Star Borough is seeking art for two separate areas of the new North Pole Library: the main entrance lobby (a clerestory area with windows on four sides) and a vaulted ceiling area near the fireplace. THe deadline for submissions is Dec. 27, by 5 p.m.
Proposals for each site will be evaluated and awarded separately, but artists can submit proposals for either area or both.
The project budget will cover all costs associated with creating and designing the art, including materials, insurance, delivery, structural engineering and electrical services and contractor installation. Artists proposing suspended art will be required to work with a licensed structural engineer and a licensed building contractor to insure the art project can and will be installed safely and securely.
For full RFP and submission guidelines visit www.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=1580&sortby=fair_name&.... All applications should go through CAFÉ.
More about the project can also be found on the North Pole Library website, at fnsblibrary.org.
