City of Sedona Announces Roundabout Art Competition

The City of Sedona announces Public Art Competition for State Route 179 Roundabouts at the “Y” and Brewer Road.

The City of Sedona, the Arts and Culture Commission, and the Art in Public Places Committee announces a major exterior public art competition for professional artists residing in Yavapai and Coconino counties including, but not limited to, the City of Sedona, Camp Verde, Clarkdale, Cottonwood, Flagstaff, Jerome, Lake Montezuma, Oak Creek Canyon, Prescott, Rimrock, and Village of Oak Creek.  The deadline for proposals is Friday, June 4, 010. 


One artist or team of artists will be selected via a competition for this opportunity to receive a commission to create artwork for the primary roundabout located at the “Y” intersection of State Route 179 and State Route 89A and for the secondary roundabout located at the intersection of Brewer Road and State Route 89A.  The theme and composition for the two roundabouts should compliment each other.


Proposals will be accepted for up to $100,000 for this project.  Both roundabouts must be included in the proposals.  The selected artist or artist team will be responsible for the design, fabrication, and shipment to the site and assist with the installation of the artwork.  The available budget must cover all of the above including but not limited to artist fee, permits, taxes, insurance, materials, tools, travel, project photography and documentation, expense contingency and any other associated costs.  Installation costs will be covered by the City of Sedona.
