Eligibility:

You are personally invited to be part of the 1000 Ripple Effects Art Exhibition.
Your Art Will Leave A Ripple Effect Legacy.

I have put together the 1000 Ripple Effects art exhibition to support the opening and official launch of the 1000 Ripple Effects Project.  I am opening a community center – A Place To Call Home – Creating a safe space for young people aged 18 and older who have left the foster care system.  The statistics show, once a 18 year old leaves foster care there is 71% homelessness and 47% unemployment.  These kids have no one to rely upon and no one to depend on in life.  They are making their own way.  A Place To Call Home aims to reduce homelessness and unemployment for these young people.

“Success is about how many people lived a better life because you lived.” ~ Stacey Huish

Your art would be an amazing contribution to the entire project.  Your ability to capture and express messages through art will hold peoples attention and get really important messages across to members of the community.  People relate to art, people understand art. Your art speaks volumes.  You are very talented. Your art is going to be Making A Massive Difference to the lives of young people every day.

I say  it again!

RFQ- Underpass Placemaking & Lighting Installation

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

About the Area
Pasadena’s Shaw Avenue District was a vibrant center for social activity and commerce. Though, as is the story in many Cities, it became desolate and blighted due to the installation of the route 225 highway. The highway, while serving its purpose for the region to carry thousands of vehicles, had the unintended consequences of cutting off that vibrant center from the rest of the City. With that, the tone and trajectory of the area changed. With heavy industry in the backyard, coupled with less on-street visibility and difficulty enticing shoppers to traverse the freeway access road, the area settled as a quiet industrial fringe. Many commercial buildings were vacated and boarded up, truck yards set up shop, and a few light industry businesses took up in the inexpensive space. Not everyone left though. Despite the highway, despite the saturation of light industry, despite the benign state of the buildings and the sleepiness of the neighborhood- locals are committed and ready for change. Change that restores vibrancy and encourages creative uses of vacant buildings.

To date, the City and its public partners have invested over $2M in infrastructure upgrades and will be investing another $1.6M in pedestrian amenities to the area. At the same time, the economic development agency has piloted a mural project to bring new energy to the area.

About the Project

The City’s economic development office continues to on achieving two widely held community priorities: 1) enhance the visual appeal of the City & build a community identity and 2) reinvigorate the Shaw Avenue area north of 225. To achieve this, resources have been allocated to select infrastructure improvements and removing barriers to develop creative infill and adaptive reuse projects in the City’s northside.
A small group of committed private building owners in the Shaw District have identified challenges to reviving the area. Most significant among them, the Shaw district is disconnected from the rest of the City and the available free parking is poorly lit and encourages unwanted activities.
To address these challenges the PEDC wishes to engage an artist team to create a permanent placemaking and light installation project.

Project Location
The project will be installed under SH 225, spanning three intersections occupying approximately 77K square feet.

Project Goals
The PEDC has the goals of:
1. Enhanced Quality of Life for Pasadena citizens through provision of public art.
2. Create a critical link providing stronger connectivity between the Shaw Avenue District and the rest of the City.
3. Discouraging unwanted behaviors by improve the lighting and overall safety of the area.

Project Constraints City staff has identified opportunity areas for the placement of the lighted public art. These opportunity areas are preliminary, and the City is open to similar locations proposed by artists. However, some restrictions the artist should be aware of include the following: a) Maintaining the Structural Integrity of Bridges. b) Understanding Permitting Requirements. Because of the nature of the project location, several permitting agencies could be involved in the review and approval of the selected art installation (City of Pasadena, Harris County, Texas Department of Transportation)

Call for Artists

This RFQ is part of a multi-phase process by which the Pasadena Economic Development Corporation seeks to identify and select a qualified public artist to create and install a lighted public art project. The agency seeks qualifications from experienced public artists (or artist teams) who specialize in public art lighting design. This individual or team of individuals must be able to: a) design an art /lighting project for the public realm; b) work within multiple, complex physical constraints (e.g., structural considerations, environmental restrictions, and various permitting requirements); and c) collaborate with agency staff to ensure the pragmatic design and successful installation of the project; and d) design and implement the project within a budget. Request for Qualifications

1. Eligibility

This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is open to professional artists or teams with experience in the design, fabrication, and installation of public artwork that has lighting incorporated as a critical focus of the artwork.

The artist must demonstrate:
a) a history of professional activity and achievement as an artist; b) experience managing a project of this complexity including technical competence with fabrication and installation procedures; and c) the ability to procure and direct the work of subcontractors/consultants.

2. Submission Deadline

The PEDC has tentatively set the following schedule:

5. Review and Selection This RFQ is being used for pre-qualification purposes. The qualifications review committee will check responses against the evaluation criteria. Responses not meeting all mandatory evaluation criteria will not be considered for review. Qualified respondents will be provided with a copy of the RFP if one is issued.

• Years of experience in public art and lighting design in the public realm;

• Quality of portfolio that is directly related to this public art specialization;
