Public Art Call to Artists

  • OVERVIEW
    Breckenridge Creative Arts is issuing a Request for Qualifications and Proposals (hereinafter “RFQ&P”) from individual artists or artist teams to design and implement an original, medium-scale public artwork using the theme of “snowboarding” to be installed on yet-to-be-determined outdoor site in Breckenridge, Colorado. Up to three artists will be selected as semi-finalists to develop and present design proposals. Each will receive a $750 stipend. The winning artist will be awarded a contract for between $50,000–$100,000, depending on their proposal, and will be responsible for the creation and installation of the final work.

    Please note: This project is a memorial commission meant to honor a local athlete and snowboard enthusiast while at the same time celebrate the joy and adventure of winter sports and their importance to the community.
