Budget: $65,000 USD

Areas along Trading Post Road that are possible sites for permanent or semi-permanent public art

Denver's Public Art Program, managed by Denver Arts & Venues, and the Red Rocks Art Selection Panel released a request for qualifications (RFQ) Thursday for a Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre art project.

Applications will be accepted at CallforEntry.org through April 27, 11:59 p.m. The budget for this project is $65,000, and is open to Colorado artists and artist teams only.

The vision is to incorporate permanent or semi-permanent artwork into transitional areas of the park, integrating natural and man-made areas at Red Rocks, and enhancing the visitor experience.

The selection panel seeks one-of-a-kind artwork(s) appropriate for Red Rocks, and for the diverse community that utilizes it for recreational and concert-going activities. The artwork should respect the natural scenery, and speak to the history and geology of the site. The artwork(s) should also provide a sense of excitement and discovery. The artwork(s) can be interactive or kinetic. The selection panel is looking for artists who can demonstrate experience with integrating artwork into the built environment, either in a permanent or semi-permanent way.

The selection panel is open to artwork in all medias and materials. Once selected as a finalist for the project, artists and/or artist teams will have the opportunity to select one or more sites for public art with final approval by Red Rocks staff and the Red Rocks Art Selection Panel.
