Call to Artists: University/Hardy Dr. Streetscape Project & Bicycle Lane Symbol Design, Tempe
The City of Tempe currently has two calls for artists, both of which have a deadline of March 14th, 2013. Artists are able to submit to both.
University/Hardy Drive Streescape Project:
Tempe Public Art announces two public art opportunities for University Drive Streetscape and Hardy Drive Streetscape. Artists submitting qualifications will be considered for both project opportunities. An Artist Selection Panel will assign selected artists to the specific project. Possible artwork opportunities include medians, transit shelters, light poles and pavement enhancements. The artwork will help create a memorable and welcoming presence and be appropriate in scale and composition to be viewed by passing pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.
Bicycle Symbols Project:
Tempe Public Art announces a public art opportunity for an artist to design bicycle lane symbols. The selected artist will design a series of bicycle lane symbols to be installed on Tempe bikeways throughout the city beginning with University Drive and Hardy Drive Streetscape Projects. Tempe has had a long-standing commitment to encourage bicycling through the development of bikeways. The city’s commitment dates back to 1973 when the first Tempe Bicycle Plan was developed. It was the first comprehensive bicycle plan in the state. Since then, there has been a steady expansion of the city’s bikeway network.
