City of Joliet

Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: May 31, 2024 – The City of Joliet announces a request for proposals (RFP) for a signature sculpture installation at City Square, which is a new 1.3-acre urban park located within the 100 block of N. Chicago Street, directly across from the Rialto Square Theatre. City Square will be a catalytic transformation of underutilized, publicly owned space into a vibrant gathering place to the heart of downtown Joliet. We are seeking a unique sculpture that will act as a centerpiece to the City’s much anticipated public square. The sculpture should be reflective of Joliet’s culture and diversity.

The RFP is open on a national level to all professional sculptors. Interested artists should have demonstrated the capacity to create and install three-dimensional artworks that are innovative, unique, and highly visual.

The City’s budget for the sculpture is $200,000.00. The project and budget are all-inclusive of artist’s fees and materials including but not limited to, design; engineering; insurance; permits; fabrication; labor; recognition signage; shipping/storage; travel; and installation. Lighting and landscaping needs will be addressed by the City’s Public Works department.
