TOTAL BUDGET FOR ART: $67,900
The Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council, on behalf of the City of Ketchikan,
requests concept proposals for three distinct locations within the new Ketchikan Public Library
(KPL). The budget amount of $67,900 is intended to purchase artwork for all three locations. The three locations include: 1) a suspended piece over entrance lobby, 2) artwork for the fireplace area, and 3) six I-beam columns along the “hallway” of the main library area.
A Pre-Proposal meeting/teleconference was held March 20th, 2012, to share information and offer an opportunity for artists and/or teams of artists to direct questions to the KPL project/design team and KAAHC relative to design specifications of locations for art pieces. Proposals by both a single artist and/or teams of artists will be accepted for the suggested locations. Preference will be given to Southeast Alaskan artists. See below for meeting notes and further clarification.
